The MAGOS Hungarian folk band will perform at UL Lafayette in Angelle Hall room 153 on April 16 at 7:30 pm. The MAGOS is one of brightest and upcoming stars of the Hungarian folk music scene and have won the title of “Best Folk Music Band” from the Budapest FOLKBEATS talent search program. Their prize was a tour of North America, which brings them to the UL Lafayette campus.

MAGOS and their generation of folk musicians may be the last links who were still able to learn from the great master of folk music who lived and preserved folk music for decades. Now it is their generation who must keep the authentic folk music alive to pass it onto future musicians.

The musical philosophy of the MAGOS is to learn and present Hungarian folk music in its archaic form and perform it to the young generation.

The MAGOS will play authentic Hungarian music, also called, Táncház music, from the Carpathian basin, which include Hungary, Transylvania and part of Slovakia. Whenever possible the performance will be finished with Hungarian folkdance teaching, the audience may also experience the wonderful Hungarian culture not only listening but also participating.

The concert is presented by The Hungarian Cultural Center, NY & Centrum Management. Admission is free.
