Gypsy music project brings Eastern European culture to East London

AN Eastern Europe and Balkans music charity is set to entertain and inspire young people with gypsy art and culture.

The ‘Magic of Making Music’ is a winter programme of workshops that get audiences to play, build, and learn more about wind and percussion instruments such as a ‘clarinoodle’ and tin can xylophones. Attendees will also learn folk and gypsy songs and be taught by professional musicians.

The project is the brainchild of Hackney charity London Gypsy Orchestra, a 45-strong ensemble of musicians from myriad cultures and backgrounds.

On 20 October, a 'jam and open mic session' opens the project at St Anne’s Community Hall, Hoxton; followed by instrument making workshops on 27 October, and 3 November at the same location. Singing sessions for children start on 10 November at Hoxton Hall; and a children’s winter concert takes place 16 December at the same venue. In addition, other improvisation, open mic and jam sessions are set to take place at St Margaret’s House, Bethnal Green.
