The Pannonia Allstars Ska Orchestra, which celebrates its twentieth anniversary in 2023, is planning a very special record release concert for this evening, as the album they have made together with the famous American producer and two-time Latin Grammy-winner Victor Rice is absolutely unique, even in comparison to the rest of their already extremely colourful career as a band. The concept itself is remarkable: as a fan of Béla Bartók, the currently Brazil-based Rice presents in it songs selected from the treasury of Hungarian folk music placed, together with PASO, into a Caribbean musical environment while emphasising the musical similarities and common denominators of the two worlds.
Producer Victor Rice fell irretrievably in love with the oeuvre of Béla Bartók during his studies at the Manhattan School of Music, so it has long been his ambition to show the similarities between Hungarian folk music and the world of Caribbean music. Since PASO had already experimented with similar ideas, this made them an ideal partner for the job: it was not by chance that Rice was invited to join the ensemble. The producer travelled to Hungary and personally participated in the rehearsals p...rior to the recording sessions, which he also supervised. The band invited many guest musicians well known and recognised in folk music circles to the studio, adding a hurdy-gurdy, long flute, violin, cimbalom and folk singing to the already rich instrumentation. PASO will be presenting the material in a line-up supplemented by folk musicians, and joining the guest artists featured on the recording to make a one-off contribution will be Márton Agócs, frontman of Aurevoir.. They will also play earlier PASO songs rearranged for this rich line-up, filling up an entire evening with this PASO folk atmosphere.
