Attila Mihó

I don’t know myself how Mihó Attila and Friends came into existence. When I was twelve years old, I met my friend Görög András at a dance house for kids in Ráckeve. It was the first time when he helped me play the violin, which became regular over the years. In the autumn of 2011, I began my studies at Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music, majoring in folk music. At the time we ran our own dance house in Budapest for four years, and up to the present, we are regular guests of the Sebők folk-dance club and Fonó Music House. In the last six years, the current line-up gradually evolved, and we released our debut album called „Which way…” in 2017.

A musical genius who combines Central European heritage with the Afro-American roots of jazz both while composing and performing –  to a perfectly natural effect.

Bara Band

The quintet gains inspiration from the folk heritage of the Carpathian Basin. The thoroughness of their interpretation lies hidden under the apparent ease, diverse arrangements and joyous lyrics of their music. They serve as a bridge connecting the musical heritage of the past with the technical possibilities, and more than anything, the needs and emotions of our present.

Budapest-based Babra performs captivating almost-forgotten traditional music of South Slavic minorities along the Danube from a fresh perspective, with tamburitza, accordion, clarinet, percussion and vocals.

Performing captivating South Slavic and Balkan music, Babra was formed in Budapest in 2014, at the intersection of Western and Eastern Europe, a long-time melting pot of still-living rural traditions and innovative urban cultures. The dynamic and varied music of the South Slavs who centuries ago resettled along the banks of the Danube, features the traditional plucked string instruments called tamburitza along with beautiful polyphonic singing. Babra performs this music as well as Macedonian and Serbian styles, incorporating clarinet, saxophone, accordion, and traditional percussion into their instrumentation. 

Babra takes the almost-forgotten diverse musical styles as inspiration for their own unique sound, embodying this rich musical heritage with youthful energy. Their first album was released in 2019, earning a spot in the top ten of the WMCE. They also had the opportunity to play at the Womex2020 showcase in MÜPA.

“From the banks of the Danube we came, tamburitzas in hand; from a tiny, hidden musical paradise of archaic, polyphonic singing style, the unity of the tamburitza and the harmony of the clarinet and the accordion, whose rolling melodies taught us what it’s like when one sound freezes time, while another joyfully gives birth to light.”

Rozsdamaró Band

The name Rozsdamaró comes from a friend, and means „rust remover”. Rust refers to the crackly, archival recordings we use to learn the style and original sound of the village bands of old. We started playing together in the year 2000 in Szeged, released our first album in 2004 with the title „Then and Now” (Egykor és Most), and received the Young Artist of Folk Arts award in 2005.


Rézhúros Band

Most of us were drawn to folk music through dancing, only to realize that although music and dance are complementary, it’s hard to do them both at the same time. We chose to play music, a decision that has defined our lives ever since. Almost all of the members come from the same village: Üllés, in the Southern Great Plain region of Hungary. We constantly train and study our rich folk heritage, and eagerly receive instruction from our masters, who still had the chance to learn from the legendary village musicians of the past century.
