Gjertruds sigøynerorkester (Gjertrud’s Gypsy Orchestra) was founded in 1989 and has specialised in eastern European Gypsy music from Russia, Romania and Hungary. We have also worked on Yiddish music with Bente Kahan and Norwegian “Tater” (Romani) music with Elias Akselsen. Our newest project is a cycle of re-interpretations of Chopin’s mazurkas in collaboration with composer and pianist Nils Henrik Asheim.

Gjertrud’s Gypsy Orchestra receives financial support from Arts Council Norway.
