The aim of the Budapest Gypsy Symphony Orchestra is to keep this exceptional musical value alive, not as a touristic spectacle but as an appreciation of artistic performance, to upkeep the tradition that can be traced back for centuries, the curio that they brought with them as a family tradition from generation to generation, enriching the colourful palette of cultures of the European nations.
