Refreshingly unconventional, snappily attired, boutique orchestra. Budapest Café Orchestra bring you gypsy and folk-flavoured music repackaged in their own fresh and surprising way. From Balkan and Russian traditional pieces to artful distillations of the masterpieces by the great Romantic composers to Gaelic folk anthems, their infectious music will get into your veins and stay there forever.
The Budapest Café Orchestra was established in 2009 by British composer and violinist, Christian Garrick, and led by him have won legions of fans with their magical and infectious performances. A small but impeccably formed ensemble of just four players, the BCO combines violin, guitar, accordion, double bass, saz and balalaika to dazzling effect.
