Hobo’s Woodstock

Földes László Hobo – vocals

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

It’s been 50 years since Woodstock. That festival; that summer in 1969 was the peak of rock, with spirituality and music that could still have an effect on the world, and reflected the spirit and philosophy of an entire generation. From then on, this feeling would only become fainter, and music, more commercial, a process in which, incidentally, sixties’ stars also took part in, or still do today. Yet the generations that followed entered the genre under different social conditions and with different intentions, and although the popularity of music grew as further generations reached adulthood, the progressivity and spirituality of yesteryear began to ebb, and today – understandably so – are only present as nostalgia. Even if the greatest, such as Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Rolling Stones or the Who did not stray from the path. Tonight I would like to show the feelings, thoughts and music of the sixties, the ones which had set me on my path and which are still important for me today. So much so that I have translated them, and have been playing them continuously for decades.

I Was Born in a Storm

Földes László Hobo – vocals

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

At the end of March this year I played a difficult show at the Budapest Arena. I endeavoured to combine poetry and theatre as well as video sequences, also using documentary photographs in an attempt to emphasise the intention. The “outtakes” today are meant to represent instead the cheer and togetherness between people.

Debussy soirée with Harcsa Veronika and Anastasia Razvalyaeva

Harcsa Veronika vocals

Anastasia Razvaliaeva harp

Multi-faceted singer Harcsa Veronika takes the stage alongside Anastasia Razvaliaeva, a harpist born in Russia and winner of the Junior Prima Prize. The two young musicians will perform lieder composed by Claude Debussy based on poems by Paul Verlaine and other poets in a novel and daring approach befitting the great composer. The artists show a new side of these well-known Debussy lieder through the ethereal sounds of the harp and “sotto voce”, a singing technique more akin to speech.

CSOMA – Opera Cinematique


Szemző Tibor – narrator, Kéringer László – vocals, Gőz László – conches, bass trumpet, Regenye Zoltán – sound design

It has been exactly 200 years since, on 23 November 1819, Kőrösi Csoma Sándor (Alexander Csoma de Kőrös) set off from the Szeklerland to seek out the origins of Hungarians. Yet it is not only because of this that we consider Csoma significant; not only because during the 58 years of his life, he performed invaluable scientific work; but also because the quality of his character points to the singular greatness of man. On the occasion of this 200-year anniversary, we wish to pay tribute to his memory and his character with this movie concert, which follows his life and both his physical and spiritual journey, and is the stage version of the successful, multiple award-winning film, “A Guest of Life – Alexander Csoma de Kőrös” (

Their music is extremely varied; they have a propensity for exploring the ethno genre, and draw inspiration from the most diverse musical cultures.
