Tázló band from Budapest performs csángó-Hungarian folk music form Moldva. The csángó music is fascinating and full of energy. The dance rhythms and lyrical songs have an ancient atmosphere.

The csángó-Hungarian minority lives in the eastern part of Romania. We play their traditional folk musical instruments. The flute, the violin, together with the drum and the koboz (a kind of lute) make a unique sounding, completed with the voice of our singer. We have been collecting, studying and playing Moldavian folk music for the last 25 years. We build up our music through using the csángó melodies freely. In our adaptations we combine the modern with the traditional.

Tázló band plays concerts and folk dance workshops (dance houses). We played on several hungarian festivals and events, as Művészetek Völgye, Mesterségek Ünnepe, Csángó Bál, Táncháztalálkozó, etc. We also participated on international festivals in the Chech Republic, Poland and Russia. Every second Friday we play in our regular dance house event in Budapest. We won the Dance-house Guild’s Award as the best dance house band in Hungary.

We usually invite other folk and world music performers in our club. It was a really good experience to play together with Cimbaliband, Rackajam, Zuboly, Góbé and Muzsikás in the last years. Iconic persons visited our club as Márta Sebestyén and Ferenc Sebő. We also organized dance house events together with other csángó dance house bands. These common events were the most successful.
