Slow Train Coming – HOBO’s BOB DYLAN concert

Földes László Hobo – voice

With the participation of: Brády Márton – guitar, Gál István – drums, Igali Csanád – keyboards, Kiss Zoltán – guitar, Pengő Csaba  double bass

“With his first songs, written at the beginning of the 60s, Bob Dylan upended the rules and practice of rock lyrics. He led Mick Jagger, John Lennon, Neil Young and many others on a new path. I’ve seen him live three times, and I was astonished to see that he doesn’t greet his audience, doesn’t thank them for the applause and doesn’t say goodbye. Without Dylan, rock music wouldn’t have been able to overcome the limits of traditional pop music, and it’s not by chance that thousands have covered his songs. For my part, the time has come to add to the African-American blues and songs by The Rolling Stones, Jim Morrison, Tom Waits and Vladimir Vysotsky, sung in Hungarian, by translating 15 of Bob Dylan’s songs.” (HOBO)

1945 – Film according to the sounds

the Fodderbasis Tandem’s movie-concert 

Gőz László – conches, bass trumpet

Szemző Tibor – flutes, narration

The duet of the Fodderbasis will make its first appearance in Târgu Mureș this evening. Their performance is a sort of live extension and expansion of the musical world composed by Szemző Tibor for the film 1945. Gőz reflects on the sounds of the film in his unmistakable approach, while Szemző guides the audience in this strange voyage in time, focusing on a single day in the summer of 1945 and recalling the sources of the musical composition, as well as the texts that had inspired him. The visuals of this unconventional evening are enhanced by the film fragments and unused frames of Ragályi Elemér’s series of black and white images as well as period photographs.
