Fel a kalappal! world music

Enlarge this picture! From an ensemble playing authentic folk music from Gyimes and Moldva, through long and persistent learning and countless jam sessions for sheer love of the music, Kerekes Band has been 'polished' to become a band that mingles tunes of Hungarian folk music with a large variety of popular musical genres, creating a unique style they like to call 'Ethno Funk'. The international and countrywide success did not keep them waiting for too long; one of the most acknowledged world music magazines, the British Songlines voted their third album titled Pimasz to be one of the year's best world music albums ('Top of the World') in October, 2006. Fel a kalappal! (released in September, 2008) continues to enhance their unmistakable and further crystallized sound that couples folk instruments with modern electronics.

Pimasz world music

Enlarge this picture! „Formed in Eger in 1995 Kerekes became a well-known dance-house band across Hungary and have had a regular dance-house in Eger since 1997.
Kerekes originally played traditional roots and folk music from Transylvania, Gyimes & Moldova and spent many of their early years playing and studying with the masters of Hungarian traditional music, especially Viktor & János Timár from Gyimes, with whom they learnt and collected over 250 folk-tunes, and with whom they learnt the craft of making music for dance. Kerekes craftsmanship and dedication earned them the title of ‘Young Masters of Folk Art’, an award given to them by the Ministry of National Cultural Heritage in Hungary in 1998.
Kerekes have since been influenced by contemporary music styles from around the world and now compose & perform a more modern and freestyle form of their own music with definite influences from their Balkan neighbours, Serbia, Romania & Turkey.
Lead by virtuoso flautist Zsombor Feher and backed by Viola (The viola's bridge is flattened to allow all the three strings to be played in unison) Bass, Drums and Koboz (a short-necked Lute of Middle Eastern origin) and the Utogardon (a Cello shaped strung percussion instrument peculiar to the Gyimes region in Hungary) Kerekes play what we are now classifying as ‘Magyar Funk’. A lively, jazzy, funky, dance-friendly form of music that pays proud homage to the folk music from their local Hungarian culture and yet is entertaining to a broad spectrum of the World’s music loving audiences young and old.
Recently influenced by many different contemporary music styles from around the world Kerekes now compose &perform a modern and freestyle form on their own music with definite influences from their Balkan neighbours.”
