'Budapest Ritmo Picnic', 9 – 10 October
Budapest Ritmo, the capital city’s popular world music event has always been known for the special encounters it offers – now the venues will also be unconventional.

Leading Hungarian artists of the genre will give free concerts on different spots in the city. The goal, however, is still the same: to demonstrate that tradition can be exciting, and that the universal language of music can speak to everyone.


Friday, 9 October

On Hunyadi tér, you can listen to the scintillating music of the Mediterranean (Meszecsinka), and Branka Trio’s songs, which were inspired by Serbian melodies.

At Millenáris Park, Mónika Lakatos and Mihály Mazsi Rostás perform traditional Vlach Romany music, and there’ll be wind music from Gyimes, Moldova and the Balkans.

Rákóczi tér will be cheered up by Romany tunes from Borsod County (Várkonyi Csibészek) and Sena Dagadu.
