ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Taraf de Akácfa is an international six-piece ensemble based out of Budapest, Hungary, performing Balkan and Eastern European folk music. The band was formed five years ago by travelling street musicians who met in Budapest and decided to stay there for their common passion and appreciation for this tradition of music. Over the years, band members have had the opportunity to travel, study, and perform with some of the finest folk musicians such as Taraf de Haidouks, Tcha Limberger, and Marcel Ramba. They mix their knowledge of different musical backgrounds to blend traditional styles with new ideas and arrangements.
