Heveder is a well-known folk band from Europe. They are regular stars of prestigious festivals in Hungary and Transylvania! The band was featured last year at the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival, the largest annual cultural event in the U.S. The Band has premiered the “Csávási Ballada” composition in 2009 with Háromszék Dance Ensemble, for which they received the Symposium of Professional Dance Groups Award. The musicians received the EMKE Award in 2008.
You must see this beautiful folk concert featuring talented Hungarian folk dancers Norbert and Zsuzsanna Busai, and guest violinists Florin Kodoba and Gergely Koncz!
