Over its history of three decades, Makám never stopped renewing itself: its songs have combined the folk music of different ethnicities, contemporary music and jazz in countless ways, creating harmonious wholes that allowed tradition and modernity, the East and the West, the collective and the individual to appear as mutually dependent on each other. Their records and concerts have featured such great singers as Irén Lovász, Bea Palya, Ági Szalóki, Szilvia Bognár, Ágnes Herczku and Erika L...ázár.
With songs, prose, poems and photographs, the group, which was founded by Zoltán Krulik, tell a story at this concert that started sometime in the 1950s, and lasted into the 21st century. We set out from Galla, a village in Western Hungary, and through Tatabánya and Pannonhalma, we reach Budapest. The Makám adventure then unfolds between Paris and Delhi, Krakow and Split.
For this special concert, Krulik selected songs with a personal mood he wrote over 35 years, as well as autobiographic writings from The Last Paper Plane, his volume of prose, and The Cheapest Cinema, a collection of poems.
