Vujcsics Ensemble– specializing in traditional music of various Southern Slav ethnic groups – celebrated their 30th birthday in April in a 3 hour concert to a full house at Budapest’s new National Concert Hall. Reknowned musicians in the Hungarian dance house movement along with the Söndörgő Ensemble – a young band made up largely of the Vujcsics Ensemble’s offspring – were invited to share the stage for this event. A sentimental and symbolic gesture during the performance was presentation of a flute once owned by Vujcsics himself, to the youngest member of the Söndörgő Ensemble. Report by Tóth Ferenc ’Vuk’
