Besh o droM founded in 1999 by Hungarian brothers-in-law Gergely Barcza and Ádám Pettik, the band has evolved from a trio to the mad cat big band it is now. Their music is inspired by Balkan, Hungarian and Romanian Gypsy tunes and Middle Eastern traditional music. They interpret this music in their unique style, mixing various musical genres and backgrounds. Most of the tunes they play are traditional but they take the liberty to use any tunes they really like and enjoy. From their home base in Budapest, they have travelled the road to international success at the same speed of light that characterizes the songs on their last two albums GYÍ and Once I Catch The Devil. They are one of the favourites of the major world music and jazz festivals in Europe.

"An urban wedding band, Besh o droM’s sound is ethnic tradition with the best of club culture, the unique sound of the cimbalom, a fantastic Balkan brass section with locked-down funk grooves. A 1000mph musical mayhem, a real audience pleaser with very strong musicianship. On this album featuring the world famous Gypsy singer Mitsou and Ági Szalóki who’s name sounds more and more familiar.
A splendid flight of wildness and joyus exuberance that rarely pauses for breath”
