Since its foundation in 1985, the unique musical formation, the 100-member Gypsy Ensemble, which is officially considered Hungarian, has given more than a thousand concerts in many cities in Africa, America, Asia, Australia and Europe. However, Nándor Beke Farkas noted that although the band is popular abroad, the Hungarian audience is always their best audience, because Hungarians really understand what the band interprets on stage.
Epidemic is of course Gypsy band with 100 members Scattered musicians also affected him very badly, almost. In difficult times, they managed to hold out thanks to the support of the Hungarian government, and in the end, the band got a new rehearsal hall in Budavok Nageteteny thanks to the intervention of Mayor Ferenc Kasai and Member of Parliament Zsolt Nemeth. They have been preparing their performances there for two years now, in the Civra Giorgi Cultural Center.
Attila Kokkini, who played her father and father in the 100-member Gypsy Band, will be a guest at the concert on April 23. So, Attila Kokkini will actually be coming home to join the band, and he also has a lot of friends that he grew up with.
“From the stage they will hear cheerful music imbued with heart and soul,” Nándor Beke Farkas assured. “He who comes to his house will be very different from how he arrived. You will leave with a soul full of happiness.”
Regarding gypsy music, the conductor also spoke about the fact that the tradition of live music in coffee houses is dying out. Unfortunately, everyone feels this trend, Nándor Beke Farkas said, it affects all of them.
He mentioned a Hungarian government program that ran between 2018-2021, which gave bands the opportunity, for example, if the band leader knew an owner or manager in a restaurant he could talk to about taking the band there. , the owner of the restaurant does not have to pay for this. The musicians were paid by the Hungarian government rather than the restaurateur. This program was so successful that, by the president’s estimate, two hundred musicians and forty to fifty bands were able to find a job nationally. In his opinion, it was a very good initiative and he hopes he can start over.
