Again and again

VENI’s mix of folk songs, jazz and playful electronica makes her one of the most promising acts on the scene. Marked by Veronika Szász’s velvety voice, she creates a dreamy, mellow and memorable soundscape, lifting the listener a few feet off the ground. Young cinematographer Ábel Regős adds his quirky, experimental technique to create a unique coupling of image and sound.


Mordái is the front runner of the youngest wave of Hungarian dark folk rock. Their concertfilm was directed by two young wellknown directors: Gábor Reisz and Bálint Szimler. Inspired by the experimental folk music movement of the 1960s and ‘70s and giants of the genre such as Muzsikás or the Sebő band, Mordái debuted in 2018 with lead singer Soma Nóvé’s EP, “Népdalok” (“Folk songs”). Their sound focuses on the dark aura of folklore, fuses it with drops of wildly experimental jazz and brings it to catharsis with powerful hard rock. Their music feels like walking through a forest at night – and knowing that bandits are watching the road.

Budapest Ritmo day tickets and passes grant access to all film screenings, but also individual tickets for the single screenings are available. The capacity of the venues is limited to varying degrees.
