Led by jazz violin superstar Christian Garrick the Budapest Café Orchestra play folk and gypsy-flavoured music from across the Balkans and Russia, mournful Klezmer melodies, raucous Romanian Doinas and Hungarian Czadas. Evoking vivid images of Tzigane fiddle maestros, Budapest café life and gypsy campfires – plus a few surprises along the way – a show by the BCO is good enough to make you want to book that holiday down the Danube!
Hugely entertaining, immense skill and profound musicianship. They have won acclaim from fans, fellow musicians and critics alike for their electrifying and entertaining shows. They’re hard to describe, you just have to see and hear them. The Budapest Café Orchestra is as fantastically exciting as it is musically impressive. Jazz violinist Christian Garrick leads from the front as the BCO journey far and wide across the Balkans and Russia, Klezmer, Romanian Doinas, Hungarian Czardas. This is no simple Tzigane tribute band – expect surprises, diversions and adventures along the way.
