Taraf de Akácfa is an international 6 piece ensemble based out of Budapest, Hungary performing Balkan and Eastern European folk music. The band was formed 5 years ago by travelling street musicians who met in Budapest, and decided to stay there for their common passion and appreciation for this tradition of music. Over the years members of the band have had the opportunity to study and perform with world renown folk musicians such as Taraf de Haidouks, Tcha Limberger, and Mercel Ramba. They mix their knowledge of different musical backgrounds to blend traditional styles with new ideas and arrangements. Their repertoire ranges from danceable Macedonian Coceks; and complex odd time Bulgarian melodies; to Romanian Gypsy Horas and heart wrenching Transylvanian songs. Taraf de Akácfa has performed at weddings, festivals, dance halls and concerts throughout the US and Europe. They successfully toured the USA in March 2016 and released their first full length album recorded in Budapest, Hungary in October 2016. They will tour through California for 3 weeks beginning in January 2018.
