Söndörgő – Tamburising: Lost music of the Balkans

We are delighted to announce that Hungarian group Söndörgő (no, we’re not sure how to say it either) are releasing their album Tamburising: Lost music of the Balkans on World Village UK. The release date has now been confirmed as 27th June 2011 in the UK on CD and digitally worldwide, which coincides with their appearance at this years Songlines Encounters festival at Kings Place, London, on the 25th June.

Söndörgő play nimble, life-affirming party music. Their trademark instrument is the tambura, a small mandolin-like instrument played in the Serbian and Croatian communities in Hungary. It’s something very different from the fiddle-led sounds that dominate the Hungarian tradition. The music Söndörgő play is one of the best-kept secrets of the Balkans with nimble, rhythmic dances that set the feet tapping.
