Sondorgo in Session

Duration:
2 hours
First broadcast:
Friday 22 July 2011

Lopa Kothari presents a World on 3 session with Hungarian tambur band Söndörgő.

Founded in the small Hungarian town of Szentendre in the mid-90s, the band of young musicians set out to preserve the traditions of Southern Slavic folk music. Their sound is based on the instruments of the tambur, or fretted lute, family, complemented occasionally by wind instruments and accordion. Their repertoire is compiled out of the folk song material gathered by 20th Century composers Béla Bartók and Tihamér Vujicsics.

Historically Southern Slav ethnicities living in Hungary have been particularly isolated from each other. Consequently, the traditions that they treasure and maintain display a wide variety of differences, both in musical instrument types and forms. The first written record of the Southern Slav tambur dates from 1551, the instrument being of Iranian and Turkish origin, but used in a variety of forms in the Balkan peninsula.

Plus music from around the globe.
