Bandais aworld-music band from Bratislava (Slovakia), founded in 2003.

The band plays traditional folk songs in contemporary arrangement. The members are renowned folk musicians with long-time experience in folk music and other genres.

The band’s music is based on genuine, authentic roots of Slovak folk music. It is then also inspired with other music genres – old music, blues, jazz, beat, as well as folk music of other countries – particularly with Balkan, Celtic, Slavic, Indian, Caribbean and Latino-American music.

Banda uses acoustic instruments and rich vocals with respect to tradition – but in a brand new, original guise.
