“Söndörgő are proving themselves to be one of Europe’s most versatile and exciting bands.”
Simon Broughton, Songlines Magazine
The brotherhood of virtuosity, contemporary inventions and respect - Söndörgő from Hungary combines these all brilliantly with their signature instrument, the Hungaro-Serbian tambura.
Listening to the band play, you soon hear it’s nothing like traditional violin-led Hungarian music. Söndörgő’s sound is light, springy and delicately plucked. Their signature instrument is the tambura, a mandolin-like instrument, probably of Turkish origin, used by the South Slav (Serbian and Croatian) communities in Hungary.
The band is made up of three brothers, Áron, Benjamin and Salamon Eredics, plus cousin Dávid Eredics and Attila Buzás, the only non-family member, on bass tambura.
What Söndörgő combine brilliantly is a respect for the traditions, a desire to innovate and a fizzing unstoppable virtuosity.
Nyolc 8 Nyolc
Söndörgő has always been aiming for creating a coherent flow of music out of their separate pieces. The need for musical "story telling" has increasingly disrupted the framework of folk music and folk music adaptations. This is how this album, ‘Nyolc 8 Nyolc’ consisting mostly of Söndörgő’s own tracks was born.
With their musical perception the band opens gates to other genres, especially to classical music. This is emphasized by their distinctive adaptations of not only Bartók's pieces (Parsley Bride, Kind of Bela) but also of Serbian folk songs (Stani, Broad Leaves) which are all significant elements of this musical journey.
