extra info De Hongaarse folkgroep Söndörgö(spreek uit als Shoendoergoe) is met haar energieke Balkanmuziek een graag geziene, swingende gast op festivals door heel Europa. Zo zorgden de vijf muzikanten op Festival Mundial (2014) en Lowlands (2012) al voor heerlijke zomerse feestjes, met muziek die meer aan de Balkan doet denken dan aan de Hongaarse poesta’s. Söndörgö houdt de Slavische traditie van het Donau gebied hoog met bedwelmend spel op de tambura, een snaarinstrument dat sterk lijkt op de meer bekendere mandoline. Maar er wordt ook gloedvol geblazen op trompet, klarinet en saxofoon, accordeon gespeeld en op trommels geroffeld, meestal razendsnel en swingend, soms ook prachtig verstild. Het meest recente album Tamburocket eindigde hoog in de jaarlijsten van toonaangevende magazines als Songlines en fRoots.

‘Fast and furious, fingers flying with a fiery panache, Söndörgo are one of the most exciting bands in Europe. With their signature instrument, the tambura, the band brilliantly combines respect for tradition with a desire to innovate and a fizzing virtuosity’ (Songlines).

 
english Söndörgö is one of the most active and interesting world music groups in Hungary. They play a style of music that is hugely attractive, but little known and quite different to the traditional, fiddle-led hungarian repertoire. Their aim is to foster and preserve Southern Slavic traditions of the Serbs and Croats as found in various settlements in Hungary. Most of these communities are situated along the Danube, but quite isolated from each other.
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. Söndörgö'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, Söndörgö 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.
