The Hungarian band named Erdőfű was born from the collaboration of táncház (‘dance-house’) musicians. Its members are all committed to the authentic performance of folk music tradition in the Carpathian Basin, both in dance-houses and concert venues. The aim of the initiative – which can also be regarded as a music workshop – is to provide a comprehensive picture of the string folk music of  Hungarian-populated areas as well as other ethnic groups living there, paying special attention to the particularities of a given region or settlement. The musical philosophy of Erdőfű is based on professional knowledge and proficiency in the specific instruments regarding the music tradition of a certain region, therefore, its members each are highly experienced in playing instrumental folk music. Their performances provide an opportunity for the audience to experience the unique sound of folk music in the Carpathian Basin through various instrumental formations and specific articulations.
