Tokos - Fokos - Pósfa: Completely Unexpected Situations in Folk Music

Colleagues, now, who will play and on what? It’s a good question, and at this concert the answer is far from certain! Highland (Pósfa), Transylvanian (Tokos), Vojvodinan (Fokos) – are three hard-working bands, each masters of their own genre, renowned and emblematic groups in their own regions. But how will they get along together on one stage? A border-crossing game of cross-border bands develops on stage at the House of Music Hungary, with a lot of humour and very few points of certainty, apart from the common language of Hungarian folk music that is. Anything can happen during this magical game of musical chairs: the cimbalom player from Vojvodina is forced to play the violin and the Transylvanian contras accompany him on the cimbalom; improvised musical blocks, melodies that match, marvellous musical moves played in a randomly mixed musical line-up. An interactive concert? For the musicians concerned it certainly is! Apart from Tokos, Fokos and Pósfa, there is one more figure playing on stage: serendipity... and the game master… István Berecz
