In the framework of a large-scale three-day festival, we present the rich musical and cultural palette of Hungarian nationalities with their leading, outstanding, defining performers in the co-organization of the Kalyi Jag ensemble.

Teka ensemble (Hungarian folk music)

The band Tka was formed in 1976. Their vocation is to collect, preserve and pass on the original values of Hungarian folk music. They learned melodies and playing style from musicians living in the village. They played together in weddings, in dance houses, while inevitably sticking to them the importance of keeping the unwritten laws still alive in the village community, keeping the word and the honor. It is important for them to pass on their knowledge to the younger generation while preserving melodies and playing style.

They teach in art schools and music schools, and they help to shape the supply of Hungarian folk music. The establishment and running of folk art camps is connected to their name, and thousands of people have become committed to Hungarian culture in the legendary Tka Folk Art Camp. They have been running their club since 1977, their dance house, which was handed over to young people in 2010. A Dance House Information Booklet was published, drawing attention to our folk art values and pointing the way to preserving it.

With their educational series entitled Music of the Hungarians, they gave a complete picture of the dances and music of the Hungarian language area in many schools and kindergartens.

With their 27 records, they recorded their own shows, the repertoire of their musicians, saluting to them. Their work was recognized by the Young Master of Folk Art, the Ruby of the Order of Honor of the Transylvanian World Association, for the Hungarian Art and the Bartk Memorial Prize. They traveled almost all over Europe with their music, representing Hungarian culture in Mexico, Canada, the United States, India, China, Japan and Australia.

Falkafolk ensemble (Balkan folk music)

The Falkafolk ensemble deals with the music of our Hungarian nationalities and the peoples of the Balkans. He plays these melodies on original instruments, which they mostly collect themselves. It is believed that the music of the peoples living in the Balkans - Greeks, Bulgarians, Turks, Albanians, Macedonians, Croats, Serbs, Romanians - belongs to one family, despite all differences and national peculiarities. Folk music is not considered an ornament for a museum, but a living one, even for modern man.

Kanizsa Csillagai (Roma / Bea folk music)

The Kanizsa Csillagai ensemble was formed in 1993 from Olh and Beas Gypsy youth in Nagykanizsa. In the current line-up, Zoltnn Horvth sings "Ibi", Laura Jobbik "Lola" sings and dances, jr. Zoltn Horvth Zotya plays guitar and dances, Attila Havasi canans and steaks, Zoltn Horvth, the leader of the band, plays guitar, dances and sings.

In the performances of the ensemble, he performs Lovarian, Beas and Romungro folk songs from the culture of the Gypsies living in Hungary, Gypsy dances from Satu Mare, Transylvania and Zempln in traditional folk costumes. Currently, they are among the few bands in the country who also nurture the songs and dances of the Beas ethnic group and introduce them to the world.

Kalyi Jag ensemble (Roma folk music)

The Kalyi Jag Ensemble is an outstanding pioneer of Roma world music. Their musical style floods the world like a river and their music has become a concept. More than four decades ago, Gusztv Varga had a dream: to sing and write songs for the first time in Europe in his own mother tongue, Gypsy. He formed the Kalyi Jag (Black Fire) Ensemble, whose fame traveled all over the world like wildfire, achieving world success in one fell swoop.

After several tours around the world and platinum records, they continue to work, continuing their mission as ambassadors of the most original gypsy folk music. Their songs are humming by thousands of fans around the world. Countless musicians around the world play and process their songs, which live in people as a unique Kalyi Jag style, now as a real Hungaricum.

The legendary Kalyi Jag Ensemble has developed an unmistakable distinctive style that sets them apart from all other gypsy ensembles. They are distinguished not only by their excellent vocal abilities, inimitable virtuoso instrumental techniques, but also by their unusual 40 years of experience on stages.

The band Kalyi Jag has started a new project in the music industry. Gipsy Gold Sounds provides an unforgettable experience for the audience. The vocals of Andrea, Krisztina and Ilona, Zsigmond and Guszti take the listener back to the romance of the Gypsies living in the past and fly him forward into the sound of 21st century world music. Jzsi's harmonious articulated mouth bass, Laci's sophisticated instrumental knowledge and virtuosity, Gyuri's accordion, keyboard or double bass playing create a wonderful atmosphere.

With the current line-up of the ensemble, it has already fulfilled the invitation of Pope Francis, as the Ensemble has also created the first Gipsy Gospel production. In 2016, His Holiness Pope Francis consecrated the Ensembles Audio in the Vatican, Nervi Hall, in front of 5,000 people. Today, pastoral songs are also sung in the churches by the faithful in Roma and Hungarian.

The Kalyi Jag Ensemble is the most recognized and worthy representative of authentic gypsy culture from Hungary to Hollywood, Sao Paolo to Washington and New York to Tokyo.

'' I can only give one thing, myself: I am a singer who sings about my own life, thoughts, feelings. '' Lejla is a regular performer at parties in Hungary and the surrounding countries.
