Tamburising (Söndörgö)



The music of the Balkans has been popularised by bands who make use of violins, accordion or brass, but Söndörgő aim to add the tambura to that list. It's a fretted instrument played with a plectrum and it exists in several different forms, from the small version used for lead work through to the far larger bass. Tambura bands were once popular across the region, and these Hungarian Serbs from north of Budapest hope to re-establish the instrument with their often rapid-fire playing, showing its potential with dance songs and brooding instrumentals. There are some fine performances here – especially when the band are joined by the virtuoso József Kovács for Serbian Gypsy songs – but the best tracks are those where the light, rippling tambura is matched against voices, accordion or brass. There are two almost painfully passionate contributions from Gypsy singer Antal Kovács, and a couple of magnificent and dramatic songs from the Hungarian actor Kátya Tompos, who is joined on the exquisite Zajdi Zajdi by flute and clarinet. When she sings, Söndörgő sound like a world-class band. Robin Denselow, The Guardian
