MAGOS HUNGARIAN FOLK BAND

 

The MAGOS Hungarian folk music band is one of brightest and upcoming stars of the Hungarian folk music scene. They and their generation of folk musicians may be the last links who were still able to learn from the great master of folk music who lived and preserved folk music for decades. Now it is their generation who must keep the authentic folk music alive to pass it onto future musicians. The musical philosophy of the Magos is to learn and present Hungarian folk music in its archaic form and perform it to the young generation. The band was selected by a distinguished group of judges, during 5 months competition, last year in Budapest, during the FOLKBEATS talent search program. This selection was from almost 100 entrants, they the best folk music band citation. Their winning prize was this North American tour.

 

The MAGOS in their performances will play authentic Hungarian music, it may also be called, Táncház music, from the Carpathian basin which include Hungary, Transylvania and part of Slovakia. Whenever possible the performance will be finished with Hungarian folkdance teaching, the audience may also experience the wonderful Hungarian culture not ONLY listening but also participating.
