The Gypsy Disco family have been away exploring, where we don't know. Along the way they picked up many waifs, strays and stragglers. But, most importantly, they collected some musical wonders. Now after three years in the making they want to share them with you! 14 of the most delightful Gypsy, Klezmer & Balkan brass tracks to tease and tickle you, all encompassed in one album. What better way for them to share their musical journey with you than to invite you into their London home?
We present to you...The Unholy Grail! The merging of the culmination of our musical and performative journey. Expect the family members to be on their worst behaviour in our new London home. Feast your eyes upon us in our natural habitat, laid bare like never before! All of the mad aunts, awkward uncles and cheeky twins will be there to fool, test and entertain you. We're opening our doors, so come hither, for a party you will struggle to remember.

Come tap your feet, stomp your toes, with a brew in hand to our resident music makers and soul shakers.
Tantz combine Klezmer, Gypsy Jazz and Balkan music with urban beats and virtuosic musicianship, to create a frenzied, jump-up sound that no-one can resist! With awesome musical chops, an energy not seen since punk rock’s halcyon days and ability to turn a gentle world music festival crowd into a heaving, pogoing mosh-pit, there’s something special about this band that manages to touch almost everyone who hears and sees them live, no matter what music they’re into.
Over the last couple of years Hallouminati have been carefully blending their unique and high octane Gypsy/ Punk/ Ska/ Greek/ Ragga/Jazz Mash-up and sweating it out for all to hear. Mixing the gritty realms of skankin' ragga punk with traditional Greek rembetiko vibes, they're throwin' deranged beats for a unforgettable live show.
PERFORMANCES from everyone's favourite family 'Gypsy Disco'. The family really needs to pay off their mortgage for their new home at Styx so they have all come together to create a wonderful array of world class performances featuring faces you would have certainly missed.

Over the past 4 years, the brain behind Gypsy Disco has been foraging and collecting bands from around the world, seeking to revive traditional Gypsy, Klezmer & Balkan brass music. A style of music commonly found at weddings and celebrations practised and kept alive by Roma, Slavic and Jewish communities. The bands we have chosen that embody this renaissance inject the music with a fresh and explosive sound, found on dance floors from Brighton to New York.
Each track has been carefully chosen to showcase the extraordinary and diverse range of the bands. In this way not only does it broaden the repertoire of this style but also gives a nod to long admired pioneers such as Fanfare Ciocărlia, Taraf De Haidouks & Esma Redzepova.
