The New York Gypsy All-Stars, masters of contemporary Balkan Gypsy music, is a musical chemistry experiment with explosive staying power. It was born from the very first “loud and proud” New York Gypsy Festival, spotlighting Easter European and Balkan music. Living up to its name in every way, the NYGA blend traditional Gypsy and Turkish melodies with a scorching jazz and funk backbone, creating a distinctive sound that satisfies the brain and soul. The band exemplifies New York in the most eclectic sense possible, with members hailing from Macedonia, Greece, Turkey and Brooklyn.
