Gypsy Saloon 2013
Kick-off of 11 Saturday night concerts by gypsy orchestras at the Oostelijke Handelskade.
Gypsy music from the heart of Europe, mixed with Eastern, Russian Yiddish, Latin and Arab influences. The performances take place either at the KHL or at Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy.
At the Oostelijke Handelskade a tradition has been established of gypsy concerts. It started 15 years ago at the KHL - Koffiehuis of the Koninklijke Hollandsche Lloyd at Oostelijke Handelskade 44. Recently concerts also take place at Lloyd Hotel.
The music of the Bagdalo Orchestra is in tune with the Eastern European gyspy traditions. Their repertoire is centred around Rumanian and Hungarian music, yet it branches out into gypsy jazz, Russian tango, Jiddisch and Serbian music, as well as original compositions by Nello Mirando and Reinier Hille Ris Lambers.
