- musical poems
- Hungarian folk songs
- own compositions
- songs praising God
The Hungarikum group has been performing for over seven years, during which its repertoire has grown continuously. Hungarikum translates old folk songs into our present day lives, uses own compositions and arrangements to give momentum to our thoughts, nourishes our souls with divine songs, and highlights the literary text when adapts poetry in a musical framework.
The instruments include – guitar, benjitar, ukulele, mandolin, Irish bouzouki, flutes, and mesmerizing vocals.
They feel it in their bones that traditions oblige.
Their unique sound is modern and archaic at the same time.
Their credo is: “Present the song, don’t abuse it”. What this really means to say is that they love singing for what the songs mean to them, and not for showing off themselves. They make their presence felt in this machine dominated world, and that’s important.
|The Canadian tour is sponsored by Studio Art, and it is organized by the NAHC: Cambridge – Windsor – Hamilton – Toronto – Ottawa – Montréal|

About the Artists
Anett Mudris grew up in the fairy land of the folk songs. She recalls her childhood as a time when she was always singing. She sang to the tiny creatures living in the tall grass, the chicken in the courtyard, her grandma’s flowers in the front yard, and God when she was swaying slowly on the old swing. After getting a extensive education in music throughout high school and university, Anett became an educator herself who makes children fall in love with folk music. Faith brought her together with Géza Kremnitzky, and they have been playing music together for eight years now. Her special voice transports her audience into the world of fairy tales, where the songs just can’t wait for her to sing them.
Géza Kremnitzky was born into a family where singing was part of the everyday life. There were countless number of songs and musical pieces played on the piano. In the school, he was educated according to the Kodály method, which had a significant impact on him. He became attracted towards folk music, and – instead of piano studies – he turned his attention to the plucked instruments. He became fascinated by unique folk songs and harmonic progressions. Soon he realized that several musical styles can be effectively applied to create new arrangements of certain songs, and that their specifics revive the songs themselves. Géza played in several bands and groups, and he gained much experience from every one of them, but it was after meeting and working with Anett Mudris that he really found his own place in the world of music.
