Besh O Drom

Besh O Drom

’a splendid flight of wildness and joyous exuberance that rarely pauses for breath… The band, plays music that exites them, not learnt at their father’s knee but picked up here and there and from records. It is yet further proof of the power of middle and eastern European and Gypsy music to spread and metamorphose, gathering up whatever sticks to it to make modern wide-audience music of dazzling drive and colour.” – Andrew Cronshaw, fRoots

Besh o droM draws it’s musical basis from Transylvanian, Jewish, Afghan, Egyptian, Libanese, Armenian, Bulgarian, Romanian and Greek tunes presenting folk and electronic instruments simultaneously. The different types of music from nations which nowadays do not necessarily communicate well with each other appear together in peace and harmony. They music is playful and serious, funny and touching, acoustic and electronic, authentic and urban, Western and Eastern, folk and above nations at the same time.

Besh o droM was formed in Budapest in August 1999. The name in the lovari (gipsy) dialect means „ride the road” – just like horses. With thousands of miles behind them, they have had the same effect on audience on national as well as international stages. Carfree, beaming happiness and the unstoppable stamping of the feet accompany them wherever they go, let it rain or shine, let it be an impenetrable crowd or just a few people, and besides this, or maybe exactly because of this, Besh o droM has had the biggest number of MagyArt (Hungarial Cultural Season) invitations (2001 France, 2002 Italy, 2004 the Netherlands). They performed in event of many different styles, in folk, rock, world music and jazz festivals all over the world,having had their greatest success at Montreal Jazz Festival 2004, in front of 15000 people. In 2008 they already played in Taiwan (sing for freedom), Mexico (Zaccatecas, Mexico City), Turkey, Spain, and several times in France, Spain, Switzerland.

The road so far cannot only be measured in miles and festivals. The audience could also see them in a Miklós Jancsó film with the little „Last Dinner to the Arabs Grey”. Int he 2001/2002 theatre season the group composed the music for and played in Midsummer’s Night Dream at the Szeged National Theatre with great success.
