Galata Express is an eight-piece collection of musicians exploring Turkish gypsy sound with influence from Eastern European sounds.
The Melbourne-based band’s members have come from near and far, hailing from places like Turkey, Macedonia, Australia and New Zealand. They’ve all travelled widely, playing music with Romani musicians in Turkey and Europe. Along the way, they picked up melodies, rhythms and experiences that would later influence Galata Express’ unique sound.
