The internationally esteemed Tükrös Ensemble, one of Hungary’s finest, is coming to Australia and to PS Art Space to perform at Hemispheres.

Tükrös play music from the villages of Hungary and Transylvania as played by Hungarians, Gypsies and Romanians over aeons in celebratory settings - weddings, christenings, funerals and parties. They have been one of the central bands in the revival of this once disappearing village music traditions in Hungary. Their aim isn’t to improve this music, but simply “play it as authentically as possible”. The group's line-up of violins, violas, double bass and cimbalom (cymbal) is a typical format for Táncház (dance houses), but it’s the seasoned and exquisite richness of their ensemble sound that defines this group and explains their fame and longevity.

Whilst in Perth, Tükrös will conduct workshops at a week long music and dance camp convened by the local Keszken Dance Group as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations (1967 - 2017). Dance has always played an important part in the culture of the Carpathian basin and Tükrös are joined on this tour by professional dancers Florian Hajdú and Kata Méhes who will present a program that highlights the variety and virtuosity of this genre.

This is the first visit by Tükrös to Perth and Fremantle and the signs are it will be a very memorable one.
