Live Music – Rosza Band

July 19 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Rózsa, which means “rose” in Hungarian, celebrates and reinterprets age-old musical traditions from Eastern Europe. The Hungarian and Romani music in their ever-expanding repertoire includes tranquil love songs, bittersweet stories of loss, ecstatic dance tunes, dark ballads of revenge, and transcendent celebrations of life’s blessings.

Rózsa aims to make each performance a journey to both faraway lands and inward states of being. Given the popularity of Eastern European and Balkan music, some in the audience may recognize some time-honored songs such as “Hej tulipán” and “Čaje Šukarije.” The band will briefly translate lyrics throughout the set so that everyone can appreciate the full meaning.

Band leader Katalin Pazmandi (vocals/guitar) is joined by Meghan Quinn (accordion), Lana Auerbach (violin), Carmen Borgia (ukelele), and Brian Crouse (bass).
