Madarka

September 25 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Madárka (“little bird” in Hungarian) plays the traditional music you would have heard in the villages of Eastern Europe many years ago, slightly updated.

Drawing from the rich history of Klezmer, Roma, Balkan, Romanian and Russian folk music, we take listeners on a lively journey across borders and centuries. Our repertoire is flexible and diverse, encompassing high energy music perfect for circle dancing, Yiddish love ballads, Rom murder ballads, Romanian worker’s songs mixed with Appalachian fiddle, standards and bizarre old tunes you are unlikely to hear anywhere else.

The band features our primary vocalist Dushka Ramic who was raised in the former Yugoslavia and comes to us with a deep love of traditional music. Our instrumentation can include fiddle, mandolin, accordion, sax, cello, clarinet, keyboard, guitar, and percussion.
