The Baro Lolo Orkestra (The Big Red Orchestra in Romanes) showcases Sydney-based musicians from the Romani and Gypsy Swing genres, lead by Lolo Lovina with horn and string section and special guest artist Mark Atkins on Yidaki.

Instrumentation will be horn and string sections, a 5 piece Manouche Gypsy Swing guitar section with soloists being Matthew Ottignon (Tim Minchin) saxophone, Leonid Beshlei (Monsieur Camembert) on accordion & piano and solo guitar.
