Dear Friend!

 Romengo plays Hungarian Olah-Gypsy music. Most of the members learned this music together with their mother tongues. The band performs on stage with traditional Gypsy folk songs learned from their parents, together with their own songs and world of sounds. Since they formed in 2004, apart from India (Sufi Sutra) Malajzia (Rainforest World Music Festival) South-Korea (Sori Festival) and Mexico (Cervantino Festival) Romengo gave concerts in more than 25 European festivals, and 2019 they celebrated their 15th annyversary in South-America. They had concerts in Columbia, Ecuador and Peru.


Both of the two albums of the band got among the best 10 albums of World Music Charts Europe.
Their album Kétháné hit the 5th place in September 2011, Nagyecsed-Budapest the 8th place in May 2014 on the most important professional list of Europe.
Mónika Lakatos, Romengo's solo vocalist, was rewarded with the Anna Lindh Prize in 2007, the For the Paralel Culture Prize in 2013 and in 2014 with the For  Ethnic Minority Prize.

Mónika Lakatos's first solo album Romanimo, which represents Hungarian Olah Gypsy hearers-ballads, also got among the best 10 albums of World Music Charts Europe. It hit the 4th place in February 2018 right after it was released.
Among the top 150 elite of the year of World Music Charts Europe they 15th place in 2018.
Romengo's music features the honest of the cultural roots and the renewal. Apart from that they love using traditional instruments like cans, taps and spoons, they aren't afraid of new sounding either. Their openness is marked on that they played several times  together with the Mendelssohn Chamber Orchestra and in 2015 they gave a joint evening with the Indian singer, Sumitra at Berlin Philharmonic.
According to their opinion, the limit of the Olah Gypsy music is going across the border of the country,  that's why could such different stiles got involved into Romengo's songs like jazz and flamenco, thanks for the music of Mihály Dresh saxophone player and Juan De Lerida flamenco guitar player that can be heard on the Band's Nagyecsed-Budapest album.

"We would like if more and more people could find pleasure in it and be proud of the Hungarian Olah Gypsy culture which is a very important piece of our country's treasures. We strive to be worthy for it with our music."
