A World Music Duo From Hungary

Jospeh G. Astman Concert presents A World Music Duo From Hungary with Flora Tandi, vocals and Robert Sinha, guitar. This is a concert program based on multicultural diversity in music featuring traditional Hungarian folk songs uniquely arranged by Robert Sinha, with the use of rhythmic and harmonic patterns from flamenco, bossa nova, tango, and jazz. One of the songs in the duo's repertoire, titled Szól a kakas már, is the symbol of the multicultural musical fusion they work on: It is a Hungarian-Jewish folk song originating from Transylvania that Sinha arranged with the use of Spanish flamenco. Apart from the songs based on Hungarian folk music, the duo will perform songs in French, which serves as a good example of cooperation between different nations through arts.

Presented by Hofstra Cultural Center.

In collaboration with the Department of Global Studies and Geography.

Co-sponsored by the National Cultural Fund of Hungary.
