Ethno Jazz Concert of Tarkany Muvek

Tarkany Muvek plays an organic mix of traditional Hungarian music and contemporary improvisational music that is called jazz nowadays. The main connection is the element of improvisation in both music. In a longer term we try to bring the two styles closer to each other and try to create Hungarian contemporary improvisational music based on the living traditions. Most themes are traditional Hungarian folk songs, some are Romanian. The lyrics are written by Balint Tarkany-Kovacs, the leader of the band, but some text are traditional or writen by the great poet Janos Pilinszky. The tunes are arranged by Balint Tarkany-Kovacs.

Members of the group:

  • Balint Tarkany-Kovacs - arranger-composer, lyrics, cimbalom
  • Julianna Paar - voice
  • Gergo Kovats - saxophone, classical flute, Hungarian traditional flute
  • Endre Papp - viola, Hungarian traditional viola
  • Andras Bognar - contrabass
