Sunlight that shines through music and also warms its listeners. This is the kind of music and the dance that are associated with passion and pure feelings. The lyrics are about everyday life, love, work, but they can ofent have religious themes. They often tell of the beauties of the countryside or the misery of the people who live their lives there.
– The music of Spain and its Canary Islands
– Andean folk music.
Each country boasts an individual music culture. The specific instruments of these regions make their music unique, exotic and inspirational for us.
Our goal is to interpret this to the Hungarian audience as authentically as possible, on original instruments.
