Rozsat Altettem/ I Planted Roses
Vandor Vokal has been a regular performer in various Hungarian clubs and dance-houses: Falkafolk, Csik, Ghymes, Méz, Rila, Méta, Tatros, Zurgó, Martenica, Fonó, House of Traditions, Muzsikás. As the name itself suggests - the old Hungarian word 'vándor' means wanderer - the group stages East European and Balkan vocal polyphony, using the authentic and original attributes mixed with the members' own style and ideas. Vandor Vokal was established in 1990 from pupils of Klára Bodza, folk singer and music teacher of the 'Nádasdy Kálmán' Music School in Budapest. Musical education, coupled with regular participation in field - recording trips have helped the members to master the versatility of melodies and styles characteristic of East European and Balkan folk music. The group has been actively involved in the music life of Hungary, performing in various folk music clubs, dance-houses and festivals, including the annual Dance-house Festival in Budapest, the Kaláka Festival in Diósgyõr, the Ost-West Festival in Kõszeg and the Vujicsics Festival in Szentendre. In addition to this CD release they are featured on several folk music albums and CD's like the 'Táncháztalálkozó'-Dance House Festival; 'Élõ Népzene'-Living Village Music- (Evening Song). The members of the present Vándor Vokál: Tünde Farkas, Kata Izsák, Judit Szluka have worked together since November 1996.
