Szilvia Bognár, one of the best-known singers active in Hungary's world and folk music scene, is getting ready (with the help of her excellent fellow musicians) for Saint Martin's Day with some voluble singing, uninhibited children's chattering, poems and nursery rhymes, wit and cheerfulness. Hearing the good deeds of Saint Martin, the holy man immortalised by a series of legends set out in song, played out together with scenes from his life, is sure to be a unique experience, and not only for the youngest listeners, either.
Who would not be swept off their feet by the following programme summary crafted by Bognár herself for her show Fun Twister ("Csintekerintő”), built around the changing of the seasons? To help familiarise Müpa Budapest's child audience with the programme, which this time comes as a brand new special Saint Martin's Day edition, she wrote, "We spin the songs like golden thread: sometimes we stomp, or we just dance with our hands, and even toss around lines of poetry. But what we absolutely insist ...is for the mood to keep getting better and better!” This time, the Four-Armed Fairy will conjure up the seasons, linking songs to each one, and of course also talking about what takes place in the given season both nowadays and in the past. The children will also be initiated into the customs of folk culture and peasant communities. The order and eternal cycle of nature are the starting point from which the associated customs and beliefs gain a name and form through Bognár and her four-person chamber ensemble. The singer assembled her fellow musicians from among noted performers working in Hungary's jazz, folk and world music scenes in 2006. In addition to her own compositions, Fun Twister also features arrangements of folk songs and verses by famous poets set to music. Everyone is guaranteed a loving atmosphere, family recreation and an opportunity to learn while having a great time.
