About

Our Mission

On the Budapest scene Hungarian folk music, Romani and Balkan sounds, classical and jazz, experimental method and fundamental skill come together. Hungary’s capital has harboured a striking musical underground for decades, where musicians tie together tradition and edge with mastery and wild devotion.

“Hungarians have been reframing their many traditions for generations,” explains Aron Romhanyi, Artistic Director (Music Export Budapest). “From composers like Bartók and Kodály to contemporary, freeform experiments, there is an ongoing dialog with the past, filtered through rigorous standards of musicianship and really engaging performances. It makes Hungarian music so full of life.”

MEB aims to collect the very best of the rich Hungarian repertoire, and present it with the backing of our team, helping our performers with contracts, logistics, accommodation, travel funding options.

Bohemian Betyars

Formed in 2009, Bohemian Betyars is a fiddler band with a purpose to spread the feeling of bitter revelry (an oh so Hungarian specialty) the farthest possible. Self-described as speed-folk freak-punk, their music has evolved into a new, exciting mixture – including rocking punk bouncing ska, swooping psychedelia, melodic themes all spiced up with Hungarian, Balkanic and Gipsy elements.

From the Baltic Sea to the Atlantic Ocean, in the last couple of years this real power boost band made the audience dance about a thousand times. Be it on the street, at a club or a festival, the catchy tunes of Bohemian Betyars will yank you out of the mundane weekdays and throw you into the deep waters of delirium, just as it was planned to happen.

Meszecsinka

Meszecsinka is a child of a love affair, started under the full moon. It means in Bulgarian „small moon” and comes from Annamari’s favorite Bulgarian folk song. Meszecsinka is intimate, magical and fragile, as any child of love. She sings in seven languages (Hungarian, Gypsy, Bulgarian, Finnish, English, Arabian and Spanish), comes from two countries (Hungary, Bulgaria) and leads you into a Wonderland, where Bulgarian and Hungarian folk lives together with Latin and funky, Oriental and experimental.
The members come from internationally acknowledged bands (Korai Öröm, Fokatelep, Kampec Dolores) to this inner place with one purpose: to feel good and to do only what they really want to do.
The music made with this attitude reached many people, the band has performed in the biggest venues of Hungary like Millenáris or Palace of Arts and at many festivals in the country and abroad (Austria, Croatia, Poland, Slovenia, Bulgaria).
In 2011 Meszecsinka won the first prize of the contest Folkbeats among 100 bands –a North-American tour. It happened in April-May 2013. The band played 13 concerts in 11 cities of USA and Canada, including major clubs of cities like New York and Toronto. Due to the great success Meszecsinka was invited to perform on US festivals in 2014.

In May 2012 the first album was released on CD by Narrator Records, as well as a video featuring Annamari’s special way of playing guitar. The worldwide digital release follows on the German Hiperbole Records. The album was presented first at the Austrian Balkan Fever festival. A short trailer of the album can be heard here. In May 2013 Meszecsinka is going to a German-Czech tour to promote the release, as well as its brand new album LIVE 2013.

Herczku Ági és a Banda

As the principal soloist with the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, Ági Herczku’s traditional music credentials are cast-iron, but the personality-laden singer is also an innovative folk-fusion pioneer, cheerfully merging Bulgarian, Turkish and other East European elements into a broad palette of Hungarian styles, expertly enabled by her virtuosic band.

Her latest album, Bandázom, (which actually means something like “I'm with the band”), was produced by the Bulgarian-born multi-instrumentalist, Nikola Parov, who adds guitars, bouzouki, kaval, kanun and fulsome bonhomie to the accomplished artistry being effortlessly displayed on fiddles, bass, accordion and percussion by the rest of the ensemble. Ági floats and dances and sings sublimely on top, extending an unrefusable invitation to immerse yourself in some of the finest and most entertaining modern traditional sounds from the heart of Eastern Europe.
The album Bandázom (Hanging out) was reviewed in Songlines Magazineand one of its tracks: Gyimesi Karszilamasz was chosen into the compilation album of Songlines and WOMEX 2015. Bandázom reached quickly 10th place on World Music Charts Europe in March 2015.

Romengo

Romengo play Hungarian olah-gypsy music. Most of the members mastered this music as their mother tongue. Thus, beside the existing gypsy folk songs, the band also perform their own tradition-based songs on stage with their own unique sound. Since their formation in 2004, Romengo has performed, besides India, Korea,( Sori Festival ) Malaysia ( Rainforest World Music Festival ) and Mexico,( Cervantino Festival) in more than 20 European countries, and both of their albums got into the best 10 records of World Music Charts Europe. The album Kétháné reached number 5 (September 2011), and the one entitled Nagyecsed-Budapest reached number 8 in May 2014. Mónika Lakatos, their solo vocalist, was given the Anna Lindh award in 2007, “For Parallel Cultures” award in 2013 and “For the Ethnic Minorities” award in 2014.
 
The music of Romengo is characterized by the respect for traditions and constant revival. Besides their heavy preference for using can tins as well as spoons and the “teknő” (tub), they aren't averse to new sounds either.
 
The openness of Romengo's musical world was also represented by their joint concert with the 17-member Mendelssohn Chamber Orchestra in Veszprém, 2011, and also their performance together with Indian songstress Sumitra at the Berliner Philharmoniker in 2015, directed by Birgit Ellinghaus. According to their own admission, the boundaries of the olah-gypsy music are wider than that of Hungary, that is why Romengo's songs are influenced by other musical styles like jazz and flamenco, thanks to their guest musician friends Mihály Dresch and flamenco guitarist Juan De Lerida. They are also featured on the Romengo album titled Nagyecsed-Budapest.
 
Romengo perform in small theatres and venues with the same enthusiasm and joy as they did in recent years at the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Frankfurt Opera House or at the opening of Womex Gypsy Heartbeats held in 2015, in the Palace of Arts, Budapest!

Fanfara Complexa

Fanfara Complexa was formed as a dance-house band in 2002. Since then it has been the regular and much liked participant of dance-houses in Budapest, and in the country, as well. The band has participated in numerous international festivals. They have played in China, Italy, Slovenia, Poland, the Czech Republic, Turkey and Romania. Their music is based on authentic Csángó folk music from Moldva and on the modern szerba-hora and manele melodies. Following the most ancient function of music, they play lively dance-music, but they are also happy to give concerts and to take part in parades. They have been active participants of the folk festival in Somoska for ten years where they have learned (and learn recently, as well) a lot of new melodies from the local musicians. The famous saxophonist Paun Ionel (son of Paun Vasil, the lute like instrument player) and the fanfare musicians are the two main sources of inspiration for Fanfara Complexa. Their music feeds on the folklore tradition of numerous nations (Romanian, csángó, Hungarian, Serbian, Bulgarian, Turkish, Jewish, and the list goes on.) Furthermore, they revise the world of music of the latter mentioned cultures by unique arrangement and perception. Their aim is to insert the musical processes and improvements to the musical life of Hungary.

Gypo Circus

Five musicians, coming from totally different musical backgrounds, founded Gypo Circus in 2011. Their dream was to create a band where Ethnic music of the Balkan, Gypsy music merge with punk, creating a new colour on the Folk-Ska-Punk palette.

Imagine Django Reinhardt with Stéphane Grapelli joining Manu Chao, and inviting a charismatic Hungarian singer, who went through the "Balkan" training. Crafty musicians, high energy performance, with the tough of Guy Richie's "Snatch" gypsy camp atmosphere.

Tárkány Művek

The band was founded in 2007 and led by Bálint Tárkány-Kovács. Tárkány Művek released its first album in May, 2010 and quickly became the one of the most popular and celebrated young folk bands of Hungary. The songs of the album "You Etched Your Face in Mine" have created a new musical language which can be easily described as the new pathway of Hungarian contemporary folk. Jazz given to Balkan tastes, chansons and folk songs have led to astonishing tunes. Musical themes are usually taken from traditional folk songs and the never heard instrumentation makes Tárkány Művek non-replaceable. This special sound in folk of dulcimer, saxophone, viola and bass are enriched with female vocals which make these folk tunes unforgettable.

Buda Folk Band

The Buda Folk Band was formed by enthusiastic professional musicians in 2007 in Hungary. The members of the Band started playing together already early in music schools, where teachers like the members of the world-famous Muzsikás Ensemble, Sándor Csoóri and Péter Éri were the best guidance in teaching traditional folk music. Our masters told us from the beginning that traditional Hungarian folk music has to be learned from first hand, in the villages where the music lived once. They had the inspiration to explore regions of the so-called 'historical Hungary' which includes Transylvania and other regions around the country. They discovered music, dances and different folk traditions practiced by native Hungarians in villages, traditions which were still alive. Buda Folk Band met authentic sources, important musicians who became our masters, such as the fiddler Sándor Fodor 'Neti' from Kalotaszeg or musicians from the village Magyarpalatka in Transylvania. These journeys, the experiences and musical knowledge all slowly found their way into an understanding of music and became a priority of our repertoire.
Buda Folk Band plays a special kind of Hungarian authentic folk music based on "traditional regions mixed with late modern inspirations of recent times".

Söndörgő

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. 

The group was founded in 1995 in Szentendre a small Hungarian town near Budapest, with long-established Serbian tradition. The Eredics brothers got acquainted, and started to play music together with (bass player) Attila Buzás during their high-school years. Partly because of family reasons (Kálmán Eredics, the father of the Eredics brothers, was a founder member of the Vujicsics ensemble), all the group members are profoundly touched by, and drawn towards Southern Slav folk music. Söndörgő’s mission is to research it, arrange it and perform it on stage. The current members of the group are: Áron Eredics, Benjamin Eredics, Dávid Eredics, Salamon Eredics and Attila Buzás.

In contrast to most groups playing Balkan music, Söndörgő isn’t playing brass band music, it is a tamburitza band. The tambura is a small and agile plucked instrument similar to the mandolin which is occasionally supplemented by wind instruments and accordion. Söndörgő’s traditional repertoire is made up of material gathered by Béla Bartók and Tihamér Vujicsics as well as learned from old masters of the tradition.

Parno Graszt

The band was founded in 1987 in a small village in eastern Hungary called Paszab. The band's name is a Romani phrase which means "White Horse" (which is a symbol of purity and freedom). Their songs are in both English and Romani and sometimes they sing in both languages at the same time. The members of Parno Graszt are all from Paszab and they are all relatives of each other. The band's lineup consists of roughly 10 members, but they can have up to 20 musicians playing as well as having a 10-person dance group accompany them sometimes.  The band's musical roots were collected in the immediate environment of the region they live in, Paszab and its surroundings. The band still lives in Paszab because they want to stay away from the noise and fleeting fashions of the big city. 

An ancient and lively character full of honesty, energy and directness are the hallmark of the band. Their album entitled “Rávágok a Zongorára,” released in 2002, finished 7th place in the European World Music Rankings; no other Hungarian band has ever reached this rank before. They have released a total of 4 albums so far. Their music has traveled the world (Europe, USA, Asia, India) and the BBC produced a film made about the band.

Jazz

Borbély Mihály Polygon

As demanding as chamber music, their improvised music is at times melancholy and thought- provoking, other times it vibrates and rolls with sweeping momentum.

Mihály Borbély’s newest formation, often a trio, is equally at home in the folk, world, jazz and contemporary music genres. Borbély’s artistry has been recognized by Hungary’s Artisjus, eMeRTON, Knights Cross, Gábor Szabó and Liszt awards, and with Vujicsics Ensemble, the Kossuth Prize. Cymbalom player Miklós Lukács’s extraordinary diversity and András Dés’s unique percussion have proved to be ideal partners for developing the trio’s special sound. Last fall at their concert recording (for “Polygon” 2016 – Fonó), their guest was world-famous Bulgarian kaval player, Theodosii Spassov.

As demanding as chamber music, their improvised music is at times melancholy and thought- provoking, other times it vibrates and rolls with sweeping momentum. Engaging a variety of directions in jazz, characteristics from the folk music heritage of the Carpathian Basin and Balkans, and elements of contemporary music, it can be delicately transluscent or full of powerful rhythms. The unusual group of instruments makes an exceptionally varied and rich, while at the same time unifed, world of music.

Modern Art Orchestra

Lively, snappy, intuitive and captivating. The symphonic lineup of Modern Art Orchestra is a unique musical formation, not only in the Hungarian music scene. Since its forming in 2005, Modern Art Orchestra has been a melting pot for the artistry of highly qualified young musicians in Hungary’s classical music and jazz scene. Founder and director of the band, Hungary’s leading trumpeter Kornél Fekete-Kovács established the first line of musicians with the dream of operating a contemporary orchestra which would focus on playing compositions by some of the best contemporary creative musicians of the country. Through its first years of activity, Modern Art Orchestra received masterpieces from composers like Péter Eötvös. But at that level, the career had only begun.

Since the first chapter of its story, MAO has gained the status of an internationally renowned orchestra that is engaged in many genres of music including jazz, pop, classical or contemporary ensemble. It has had countless successful projects together with the world’s leading musicians from Bob Mintzer, Dave Liebman or Wallace Roney through Rhoda Scott, Julian Joseph, Erika Miklósa, Mike Garson or Silje Neergard to Mezzoforte, New York Voices or Harlem Gospel Choir – just to name a few. Modern Art Orchestra is also proud of the engagement with one of the doyens of the world’s film music: Ennio Morricone who had chosen our orchestra for his world tour in 2014. The concert series took place in 12 cities throughout Europe from Paris to Berlin, Vienna, Prague, Brussels or Amsterdam. Last year MAO had a 6 part concert tour in the United States. This year we organized a European Tour and we had our first concert ever in Israel.

Modern Art Orchestra’s repertory contains more than 25 hours of music uniquely composed for, dedicated to and premiered by the orchestra. It began its career with being a crossover formation that plays mostly contemporary compositions, and provides stage appearance to young performing talents thus being a creative artistic workshop for a handful of carefully chosen young musicians. Now after over ten years of its ambitious activity, the band has gained its status as a creative ensemble with fresh and unique style that is sought after by many of the world’s leading artists as an accompanying partner to their latest projects.

Barabás Lőrinc

Barabás’ communication was intended to be purely through his relentless stream of music. Throughout his set there were no breaks and quite rightly none of the customary verbal exchanges: you were left simply to bask in and feel the music. The particular art on display is his lofty performance of a process, one which goes as follows: Barabás the composer conjures up a tune in his head; Barabás the seasoned trumpeter then renders his composition as a blare of his horn; the blared tune’s picked up by computer software, turning the acoustic snip into an electronic sound loop; Barabás the DJ then combines the blaring loop with a few deft strums on his synthesiser and selections from his sound machine library to get a crowd stamping. While this description might suggest fussiness the reality’s a sublime witnessing of a master DJ trumpeter at work. According to the artist 60-70% of his set is played live, recorded, and looped onstage filled in with improvisational parts and accompanied by beats, mixed live as well.

This was a unique experience in more ways than one: any live performance is unique, yet with Barabás there’s the extra dimension of experiencing a serendipitous process: the phrase “anything could happen” comes to mind. This one-man band’s set, and his signature analogue/digital combo, was a unique take on the jazz-house genre. It would be a delight – if a challenge to the DJ-trumpeter – to experience the Barabás twist of electro-jazz-house and brazen trumpet-blaring live in an unashamedly dance/house club setting.

Loop Doctors

The basic idea for Loop Doctors came in 2005, when the two founding members of the band, Aron Romhanyi (keyboards) and Peter Szendofi (drums) where talking with Gary Willis about modern musical styles, during the recording of Peter's solo album. Later the band was formed, and with special guest Gary Willis on bass, and trumpet player Kornél Fekete-Kovács, they recorded the first album "High Voltage" in 2006.

The music is a medley of different styles, including jazz, drum 'n' bass, jungle, hip-hop and rap. An overall category could be nu-jazz, but Loop Doctors can also be seen in clubs, where people actually dance to the music. Loop Doctors usually performs as a duo, Peter using an 'Octa-pad', from which the grooves, bass lines and additional synths are played, and also plays acoustic drums. Aron plays keys, and also does some vocals/rap. Since 2006 they regularly do a tour every year with Gary Willis, and in 2008 the band will also do concerts with special guest Brandon Fields on sax.

The first album "High Voltage" recieved the "Fonogram - best jazz album of the year 2008" award in Hungary. The second album came in 2008, featuring classical tuba virtuoso and composer Roland Szentpali. The use of tuba as a bass instrument in this style is a completely new concept, breaking the barriers of modern arranging. The third album, "Entering a Room" was recorded in New York, featuring Chris Hunter on sax.

Her music is a mixture of world music, also influenced by French pop music and jazz. Boggie is solely responsible for all the songwriting on her third album titled “3” which was released in September 2017.
Seeing Boggie’s live is an unforgettable experience when you can feel true connection between her and the audience. The sound of her band is really special live: electronic violoncelle is used as a bass than as a string which gives a special character for all her concerts.

Belau

“Take You to The Sea” – claims about their compositions. Belau originally started as a solo project by Péter Kedves in 2015. He was inspired by his travels and adventures abroad. The idea to translate his experiences into music came to him in a beautiful, remote village on the pristine Croatian sea- shore. In the world of Belau a constant buoyant mood and a sense of optimism meets innovative electronic beats. The message of Belau is a simple one: leave the busyness and monotony of every- day life behind, get rid of our barriers, and experience every moment to its fullest. Belau takes their listeners to cheerful places, filled with sunshine, where one can relax, unwind and find peace and harmony. The music starts you on an inner journey which is a gift in our world of increasing isolation.

This genre of elegant and clean beats capturing the feeling of summer has been dubbed as sun- downtempo. The debut song of Belau, Island of Promise was released in late 2015. The music video won the Hungarian Video Music Award’s Special Prize and it was the music video of the year at some of the biggest Hungarian sites. Now it counts nearly 400.000 views.
