Kaláka ensemble – Only have health!
December 20th, 2021 (Monday) 7:00 p.m.
Reformed Great Church

The Kaláka Ensemble brings poetry to the audience on an elegant music platter that cannot be confused with other musicians. They do not force their own compositions, but they make out the “original melody” they read from the poems born and condemned to “heart-silence” exiled to Gutenberg’s books. – Sándor Kányádi.
At the Advent concert of the Kaláka Ensemble we can hear the poems of classical and contemporary poets in a typical Kalákás version.
