The London Gypsy Orchestra brings together 20 musicians of all backgrounds and nationalities to perform vibrant, passionate and energetic music from Eastern Europe and the Balkans.


The LGO was established in 2005 by violinist Gundula Gruen, and is currently led by accordionist Pete Watson.  


The LGO is a registered charity, and through its performances, projects and outreach events, aims to inspire and educate the community in the magic of Gypsy music and culture.  Read more about the LGO's charitable aims and work on the Our Charity page.
