Buda Folk Band

The Buda Folk Band – founded in 2007 – is a Hungarian folk music ensemble is made up of young city dwellers whose parents and teachers instigated the dance-house movement in the mid 1970s.

The stimulating effect of home rehearsals and regular field work accompanied their teenage years and later they refined their skills in folk music schools and by playing together with traditional village musicians.

Vibrating at the heart of their sound is the pulse of authentic Hungarian folk music, now interwoven with musical phrases and stylistic elements drawn from elsewhere – outside influences which effect, or can effect those living in big cities far from the birthplace of folk music.

Filtering all these elements through their individual personality, the members of the Buda Folk Band have created a world of sound that is entirely the band’s own: exciting, sometimes lyrical, yet always bursting with energy. Their 2011 album ’Quick-Step Rover’ (Sűrű vándor) is an excellent example of that.
