A small, but impeccably formed, orchestra of just four players, the BCO combines 7vi olin, guitar, accordion, double bass, saz & balalaika creating an awesome aural alchemy normally only characteristic of far larger ensembles. Led by jazz violin superstar Christian Garrick, The Budapest Café Orchestra plays traditional folk and gypsy flavoured music from across the Balkans and Russia.
