a concert by the Hungarikum Ensemble
- musical poems
- Hungarian folk songs
- own compositions
- songs praising God
The Hungarikum group has been performing for over seven years, during which its repertoire has grown continuously. Hungarikum translates old folk songs into our present day lives, uses own compositions and arrangements to give momentum to our thoughts, nourishes our souls with divine songs, and highlights the literary text when adapts poetry in a musical framework.
The instruments include – guitar, benjitar, ukulele, mandolin, Irish bouzouki, flutes, and mesmerizing vocals.
They feel it in their bones that traditions oblige. Their unique sound is modern and archaic at the same time. Their credo is:
“Present the song, don’t abuse it”
What this really means to say is that they love singing for what the songs mean to them, and not for showing off themselves. They make their presence felt in this machine dominated world, and that’s important.
