Romengo plays Hungarian Olah-Gypsy music. Most of the members learned this music together with their mother tongues. The band performs on stage with traditional Gypsy folk songs learned from their parents, together with their own songs and world of sounds. Their album Kétháné hit the 5th place in September 2011, Nagyecsed-Budapest the 8th place in May 2014 on the most important professional list of Europe.
Mónika Lakatos, Romengo’s solo vocalist, was rewarded with the Anna Lindh Prize in 2007, the For the Paralel Culture Prize in 2013 and in 2014 with the For Ethnic Minority Prize. Romengo’s music features the honest of the cultural roots and the renewal. Apart from that they love using traditional instruments like cans, taps and spoons, they aren’t afraid of new sounding either. Their openness is marked on that they played several times together with the Mendelssohn Chamber Orchestra and in 2015 they gave a joint evening with the Indian singer, Sumitra at Berlin Philharmonic.
The concert will take place on August 1.
