The winners of the WOMEX Award for World Music, after 45 years of their unrivaled career, MUZSIKÁS is the most renowned and popular Hungarian folk music ensemble worldwide.

MUZSIKÁS pioneered the global popularity of Hungarian folk music that is now a well-established niche in the roots and world music scenes. Due to their unique musical skills, instrumental knowledge and musical versatility, they can cope with playing on different music stages, collaborating with noted musicians and groups, from folk and world-music to classical, klezmer and jazz, and even alternative rock music. They have already presented their exceptional live performances at the greatest festivals and in the most significant concert halls, such as the Carnegie Hall in New York.

In this concert they are joined by their award-winning young vocalist Hanga Kacsó and dancer István Berecz, both appearing for the first time in London. The show will be a journey through Hungarian traditional music from its very best exponents.

Among various prizes, they were awarded the most respected Hungarian State award for artists, the Kossuth Prize  and in 2008 they received the prestigious WOMEX Award for World Music.
