Tamburocket, the title of Söndörgő’s 2014 album, says it all, really. This record, that signaled their international breakthrough, neatly sums up how this Hungarian band sounds. The tambura, a plucked instrument with a bright tinkling sound, takes central stage. The band plays the strings with ferocious energy, breakneck speed and meticulous precision. Four members of the five-piece band belong to one extended family: three brothers (Áron, Benjamin and Salamon Eredics) and a cousin (Dávid Eredics) from Szentendre, a town on the Danube just north of the Hungarian capital Budapest. As the next generation of the musicians who played in the legendary virtuoso band Vujicsics they grew up with the music that is the mainstay of their repertoire – Serbo-Croatian songs and dances. This music is the heritage of people who fled north to escape Ottoman rule, and settled in various Hungarian towns and villages.

Söndörgő who are currently working on a new album, have visited Denmark several times, like Roskilde Festival and ALICE. Each time they have showcased an almost supernatural skill combined with true musical passion that have left the audience in a state of ecstasy. It is a great joy for us to welcome them back, this time with a show at Musikhuset København. The show is part of Vinterjazz 2022.
