In memory of Karoly Segfü

It was with great sadness we received the message that Karoly Szegfü, a fantastic musician and very kind and fine man, passed away October 18th 2016. His importance for the cello style in Hungarian Gypsy music tradition was tremendous, and he will be deeply missed by his fellow musicians.

– Dear Karcsi! Thank you so much for your inspirational lessons. We will keep the good memories in our hearts. Rest in peace!


Hungarian TV documentary about the band!

Last year a Hungarian film crew travelled Norway from north to south to make a 50 minutes documentary about Gjertruds Sigøynerorkester. The film was showed in Hungarian TV (Duna World) May 8th 2015.

The crew visited all the musicians in their homes in Tromsø, Aurland, Stavanger, Gvarv, Oslo and Budapest. Parts of the documentary was also shot while the band was rehearsing and giving concerts in Budapest. The title of the documentary is A Norvég Primás nö, (the Norwegian Primás Lady).


Memorable tour in Hungary June 14!

In the end of June we had a fantastic week in Hungary with eight concerts in Budapest, Gyula, Békés, Szentendre and Kisscösz. We performed three different programs with our magnificant soloists Ernö Kallai Kiss jr, Bente Kahan and Susanne Lundeng.

We experienced great hospitality and warm, memorable meetings with local Roma people, musicians and dancers, and we are very grateful to everyone that made this experience possible!

Cick here! to see an article and video in Gyula Hirlap.

Radiointervju med Gjertrud - Tango!

Tango-prosjekt og vår-konsert med Nord-Rogaland symfoniorkester var utgangspunkt for dette humørfylte intervjuet med Gjertrud Økland i Radio 102 5. april. En rå og smektende tango sammen med Pål Jackman, ble det også tid til.

Flere av musikerne i Gjertruds Sigøynerorkester var med på dette samarbeidsprosjektet med Nord-Rogaland Symfoniorkester. Det ga mersmak og noen har allerede begynt å hviske om tango-prosjekt for hele Gjertruds Sigøynerorkester i 2015.

Her er intervjuet!
