Dear KRUU Listeners,
It is not often that we celebrate our first year of existence - in fact it might not happen more than once ...
Sooo if you like the Magyar Mix, or if you don't like the Magyar Mix but willing to give an other try, or if you don't know what Magyar Mix is or if you just happen to turn on your radio set on September 30th at around 1 pm, we hope that you will listen to our anniversary edition when we hand pick the best tunes of this past year for your Sunday afternoon enjoyment of the musical fruits of a far away culture...
Live broadcast: September 30th / 2007 - 1 pm sharp
Don't miss "Besh o droM" on Magyar Mix - Sunday at 1 pm !
Besh o droM in Gypsy language means "sit on the road" literally, but its real meaning is "follow your path, get on with it". It is also wordplay in Hungarian meaning "I am rolling…"(a cigarette).
The band's line-up is centred around a highly experienced pair of fantastic musicians, Gergo Barcza and Ádám Pettik. Besides being friends and brother-in-laws, they have been playing together for many years. They choose the musicians they like to work with and select the musical material for the tracks.
An urban wedding band, Besh o droM's sound is ethnic tradition with the best of club culture, the unique sound of the cimbalom with jazz improvisation, a fantastic Balkan brass section with locked-down funk grooves.
Tune in Sunday - April 8th - at 1 pm
