Söndörgö: Lost Music of the Balkans – Hungary, Serbia and Croatia
Fast, furious, and virtuosic, Söndörgö is one of the most exciting bands in Europe today. Unlike traditional violin-led Hungarian bands, Söndörgö’s (pronounced shunderger) tamburitza music features the signature stringed tambura, a mandolin-like instrument. With delicate beauty and sizzling power, the band combines respect for tradition with a desire to innovate. Söndörgö preserves the Southern Slavic music of the Serbs and Croats that can be found in various settlements in Hungary.
“Their music sparkles with virtuosity and foot-tapping joie de vivre.” – London Evening Standard
