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?
Anti von Klewitz and her band Csókolom play music from the heart of Eastern Europe. The violinist absorbed the gypsy music from the Balkans and Hungary at an early age and explores the essence of the music in an exciting and original way - a new voice fusing styles and trends. With her spirited amalgam of gypsy-styled Hungarian, Balkan, klezmer and gypsy-swing music Anti awakens the slumbering Slavic soul of the listener - with passion, humor, a voice that grabs you and a virtuoso band that rocks.
