We play infectious dance music that will have the whole room on its feet. Our music is influenced by Balkan, gipsy and klezmer rhythms, as well as original compositions.

We perform at festivals, parties, weddings and community events both on stage and as a troubadour band amongst the crowds.

Previous bookings include Boom Town, Small World, Cliffhanger, Beatherder, Aeon and IVFDF festivals.


"The Bell Hagg Orkestar - guaranteed to get any dance floor moving and grooving" - Chicken Shack Promotions

"The marvellous Bell Hagg Orkestar.......Gipsy madness - brilliant to dance to."

"Some bands make music to nod your head to, others make music to bop along to, and some make music that forces you to dance like you’ve had 12 drinks too many, ricocheting around the room, spinning wildly and looking in disbelief as your legs kick and skip in moves you never knew you had. Bell Hagg Orkestar’s tunes have some sort of mystical Eastern magic attached to them. You can’t help but dance recklessly." - Now Then Magazine 2014
