Product Description

Fast and furious, fingers flying with a fiery panache, the Hungarian group Söndörgo are one of the most exciting bands in Europe. With their signature instrument, the tambura, the band brilliantly combines respect for tradition with a desire to innovate and a fizzing virtuosity.

Listening to the band play, you soon hear it's nothing like traditional violin-led Hungarian music. Söndörgo's sound is light, springy and delicately plucked. Their signature instrument is the tambura, a mandolin-like instrument, probably of Turkish origin, used by the South Slav (Serbian and Croatian) communities in Hungary.

The band is made up of three brothers, Áron, Benjamin and Salamon Eredics, plus cousin Dávid Eredics and Attila Buzás, the only non-family member, on bass tambura. Áron Eredics is also part of the band Vujicsics, winners of Hungary's most prestigious state-sponsored cultural award, the Kossuth Prize, in 2014.

'Tamburocket' is Söndörgo's second international release and features revived tunes drawn from the rich Hungarian archives and annals of the countries esteemed song-collectors and musicologists of yore.

A Folk Band of Cosmopolitan Hungary 6 Aug. 2014
By Dr. Debra Jan Bibel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Two composer-ethnographers of note, Béla Bartok and Tihamér Vujicsics, collected folk tunes from the Austro-Hungarian Empire. These melodic archives are the source of material for the contemporary Hungarian band Söndörgo, in addition to music of the Balkans and beyond. Forget the romantic Gypsy violin or the fast brass ensembles. Instead, they feature Hungarian tambura of various size, mandolin-like instruments of Turkish and Slavic development. Also heard are clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, shepherd flute, kaval flute, accordion, darbukha and tapan drums. The band's well-crafted arrangements of various ethnic dances and love songs demonstrate their versatility and command of their instruments. A Macedonian cocek grows into a snake-charming trance dance with hulusi flute and drums. Serbian and Croatian melodies are mixed with Turkish and Bulgarian drumming. A brief 1912 archive recording of a bagpipe adds some flavor and introduces a vocal, a wedding song. The string band sound dominates the album, and their improvisations are of modern taste. This is an fun, exciting family band (the Eredics) whose cheerful traditional folk music pivots on a cosmopolitan Hungary. 51 minutes.

Characterized as the bastard child of Bartok and Bluegrass these crack musicians play rapid fire music from Hungary
