New Project! Mónika Lakatos & Juan DE Lerida! 

  Two types of music – One soul


Water, bread, hands – these are the only words left in common in the language of Hungarian Lakatos Mónika’s and Spanish Juan De Lerida’s and their bands. Together with other gypsy tribes appearing in Europe in the 16th century and then spreading to the four winds, both Móni’s and Juan’s ancestors enriched their music with tunes of surrounding nations. As part of the Spanish and Hungarian cultures they have all along preserved that elemental force and subtlety that captivates lovers of gypsy music even today. This attachment to traditions and musical sincerity are the very things through which these two performing geniuses meet on stage like siblings who have not seen each other for a long time, still feel every vibration of the other. The elegance of Flamenco and the power of Czardas make this unparalleled gypsy duo’s and their bands’ performance exceptional, which aims to bridge the stages of the European continent and their audiences.
