Malac Banda – Gipsy Orchestra

Malac Banda is a Netherlands-based gipsy orchestra which plays traditional Hungarian, Romanian and jewish gipsy music. They perform weekly through the whole country, in conference rooms, wedding rooms, royal palaces and in the neighbour’s backyard. This isn’t surprising when you are once introduced in gipsy music. After a sad “rubato” the “primasz” plays the whipped up rhythm of a Hungarian “csárdás” , meanwhile the clarinettist plays a fascinating jewish song, or what about a hammering Romanian song on the cymbalum?
