Besh o droM
Attention, World Music fans, beware:
THE HUNGARIANS ARE COMING
Here is a group whose following takes to the dance floor at the first notes of each concert and just cannot stop dancing. Besh o droM’s music is a highly original alloy of East European folk music vernaculars such as Hungarian, Rumanian, Bulgarian, Southern Slav, Greek musical dialects, not to speak of the marked Gypsy, Turkish and Mid-East leanings. The group often finds itself at odds with the folk purists as they take their material out of the museum showcase to arrange it in their highly original fashion – considering this heritage as anyone’s treasure trove.
Their name, Besh o droM, is a Gipsy idiom for ‚Go your own way!‘. And so they do.
