From record label:
"The exceptional pastry, the devil’s bomb, is born from a mixture of ingredients seemingly foreign to one another (flour, eggs, milk, fat, cocoa); here Béla Ágoston takes the devil’s bomb approach in tuning together worlds of music seemingly foreign to one another. At first seemingly divergent, the sounds of big band, free jazz, various dialects of Hungarian folk music, influences of balkan melodies and rhythm, atmospheres of classical music and references from pop music - speak together and one after another. But the means of kneading all these together is what makes the music of Ördögbomba original.

Béla Ágoston is a truely universal musician: he is equally at home in jazz (in the bands: Mecseki Free, Dél-alföldi Saxofone Ensemble) and in the world of folk music (Vízöntő, Vasmalom). This recording has a good balance of arrangements with references to a purer folk sound and the more jazz-like (sometimes jazz-rock). The flow of dynamic, serious, sensitive alternating with the ironic numbers inspire listening."

From the band:
"...In our case, the new frame involves a violinist and a bassist from a string band, a guitarist from a tamboura band, a saxophonist and a percussionist from a wind band and a bagpipe-player, who is the preserver of the old style of play. Our music is a mixture which floats between the Earth and the Soul with its modern rhythm, old tunes and throbbing dynamics.: WORLD MUSIC."
