Cimbaliband: Balkán Projekt
Balkan Projekt is the latest full night concert – and album - from Cimbaliband carrying the typical habits and the mentality from the Balkans. It is the everlasting positive approach that fuels the motor of the band during this exceptional performance
Balazs Unger, bandleader has been touring the Balkans for years to collect music from the local musicians. Today he is delighted to translate it to a 21st century language that we all speak. As he reports: "Folk music is – surprisingly – a popular genre in the Balkans. It has transformed, but still it plays a key role in people’s everydays." Cimbaliband decided that they want to participate in this Balkan party. A fast-paced kolo from the Serbian neighbors, some geampara from South-Romania or a Macedonian tune in 11/8 rhythm should not be a problem – and they added some Hungarian flavor on top. The audience is witnessing how a Hungarian band based close to the borders are demolishing the – cultural – borders. A full night experience with a lot of emotions and virtuosity! . participants who aren’t dancing and are standing on one knee in the circle applaud in a specific rhythm.
Dances with objects require real skill. Among them are dancing with a sickle, the knife dance and dancing with a vessel.
