After last year's huge success, the Hudaki Village Band is now playing at BARAKUBA for the second time - but this time open-air! With this concert BARAKUBA celebrates the end of its eighth cultural season - from September it goes on.
Nine musicians from the Ukrainian Carpathians, that's the Hudaki Village Band. Their music makes you happy! Their last visit to BARAKUBA is unforgettable. The band barely found a place on the small BARAKUBA stage - and the numerous audience did not fare any better in front of the stage... But that didn't harm the wonderful atmosphere and the exuberant hustle and bustle.
During 17 years of performing at hundreds of festivals and concert halls all over Europe, the band has learned to make their archaic, nightly moments of happiness accessible to the uninitiated.
In the Maramures region, a mountainous area of southwestern Ukraine bordering Romania and Hungary, village musicians are known as hudaki.
Various ethnic musical influences make traditional music diverse and unique. Archaic Slavic vocal tradition, Romanian melodies, Jewish rhythms and Romanesque temperament blend into a local cross culture that has evolved over centuries of coexistence. Hudaki Village Band has performed at Sziget Festival in Budapest, Fusion and Bardentreffen in Germany, KlezMore in Vienna, Notes d'Equinoxes Delemont and Festival des 5 Continents in Switzerland, Respect-Prague, Balkan Trafik Brussels, Gooikoorts Belgium, Les Suds Arles in France and many more places.
