The ensemble Zengő is committed to playing folk music authentically while also fitting it to the sound experience of the present day. The band was founded in 1983 and has made several radio and television recordings and six albums so far. Apart from the Hungarian ones, the group has also had concerts in 18 other countries. Just to mention a few of them: Kaustinen Folk Music Festival 1992, Sidmouth Folk Week 1994, Bardentreffen Nürnberg 1995, TFF Rudolstadt 1999, Qurain Festival Kuwait 2010, Spring Festival Monte-Carlo 2014.

"The source of all music can be found in the soil, the streams, mountains, and the tales that, ancient though they may be, still provide a message for today. We are touched by the rich ornamentation and rhythm of the dance tunes, the alternating softness, wildness, and warmth of the devil’s music. The music performed by Zengő achieves in but a second an atmosphere of bewitchment. They know the knack of gripping us, whether from a stage or from a recording… with ability, authenticity, energy, and pride."
