Erdőfű Band

is nominated for the UPBEAT Awards 2023 in Best New Talent category. 


About the Nominee

Erdőfű is a melting pot of musicians and bands from the forefront of Hungary’s folk and world music scene. Their name comes from the archetypal folk music tale about a shepherd who lost his sheep and searches for them in the forest’s grasses and clearings (erdőfű = forest grass, forest clearing). The band presents string music traditions of Hungarians and other ethnic groups of the villages in the Carpathian Basin. As the original agricultural-farming social structures of the villages disintegrate, the group chooses the task of transferring this rich and colorful music culture into the modern urban environment.
