The music of the Roma people does not have to be played using horn ensembles. Söndörgö has had their breakthrough on the European roots-scene with a teeming concoction of harmonies from the southern Slavic regions, inspiringly transplanted to the bands home north of Budapest. The lively music is played and performed almost solely on the tambura; a regional stringed instrument whose potential is milked to the last drop. The virtuoso group of brothers and cousins has transferred their ancestral music to a present gear. This ensemble of well-playing fiery souls will give us a delightfully updated performance of the regions folk music.

Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
