About the Artists : Everybody in Hungary in the age group 3-90 years knows what Kaláka is. This charming and versatile group of five musicians (Gábor Becze, Dániel Gryllus, Vilmos Gryllus, Gábor Major, Balázs Radványi) with their special Hungarian instruments will be joined by Anna T. Szabó
who is a scholar of Hungarian literature, a poet, a writer and an outstanding translator of poetry. She says about Kaláka: ‘Kaláka is one of Hungary's national treasures. As their name means voluntary community service, they've been tirelessly spreading the joy of music and the elevating power of sung poetry all over the world for almost fifty years with the same zest, ingenuity and enthusiasm.’

The ensemble was founded in 1969 in a Budapest bier garden when the members had just joined the university. Since then they have been dedicating their music to Hungarian poetry, either to children’s poetry and rhymes or to classical Hungarian poets, János Arany, Attila József, Lajos Áprily and Sándor Weöres. Their name, Kaláka refers to a Transylvanian folk custom of working together.

They have twenty five CD-s to their credit. Kaláka was awarded the Kossuth Prize in 2000 and the Prima Primissima Prize in 2004. They have travelled to South-America (Argentina, Brazil and Chile), Mongolia, Japan and Korea.
