Ötödik Évszak (Fifth season) is urban music played with acoustic folk instrumentation. Their melodies evoke a melancholic, romantic picture of a city infused with the spirit of Hungarian folk heritage and the memory of French salons. Their music is born in an urban setting and pays respect to tradition, playfully combining these two worlds.
All band members are true contemporary masters of authentic folk music. Building on this foundation they open their music to improvisation and the unique world of French chansons.
Ötödik Évszak was selected by the seven-member jury of WOMEX 20 for the regional Duna stage. They will perform at the Budapest Ritmo feat. WOMEX autumn festival at MÜPA Budapest.
