“Magos” is one of Hungary’s brightest and upcoming bands in the Hungarian folk music scene. They are a part of the generation of folk musicians who may be the last links to the line of great masters of folk music who lived and preserved folk music for centuries, in the remotest villages of Hungary and Transylvania. Now it is their generation who are called to keep the authentic folk music alive and pass the heritage to future musicians. The musical philosophy of “Magos” is to learn and present Hungarian folk music in its archaic form and share it with future generations.
The band was selected by a distinguished group of judges over five months of competition involving some of Hungary’s top folk musicians, culminating in an internationally televised final round last year in Budapest, as part of the FOLKBEATS talent search competition. Out of almost 100 competing groups, they won the best folk music band award.
