Hungarian tamburitza virtuosos
with special guests
and DJ Pete Pandemic (from the Pandemic global dance night)
Söndörgő is one of the leading exponents of tamburitza music from Hungary. Unlike the fiddle driven village music and brass band traditions often associated with Eastern European folk music, tamburitza is propelled by the tambura, an instrument akin to the mandolin that is often accompanied by wind instruments and accordions. Founded by the Eredics brothers in the mid-90s, this exciting ensemble is committed to performing and promoting the southern Slavic folk music collected by Béla Bartók and Tihamer Vujicsis and celebrated by communities along the Danube River.
