RECENT EVENTS - ignite - Balagan Café Band

Balagan Café Band | ignite | Royal Albert Hall

A new but rapidly developing project, the Balagan Café Band brings together four of the most exciting musicians on the London music scene.

Having played every kind of music from Classical, Tango, Jazz and Early Music through to Gypsy Swing, North African, Folk and Rock, the players aim to combine their influences into a sound that is eclectic yet unified through the initial inspiration of that most innovative and inventive musician, Django Reinhardt. They try to trace some of the lines of his musical ancestory and surprising connections.


Our free ignite series takes place in the relaxed atmosphere of the Royal Albert Hall's Café Consort and features performances from talented artists, from gypsy jazz to Celtic folk. Keep an eye out for exclusive ignite lunch offers available every Friday. The full Café Consort menu is also available - click here to see the sample menu.
