Ando Drom (On the Road) Gypsy folklore group was founded in Budapest 1984. This was their first release and is on their own label. They make their own arrangements as well as composing their own material. The songs are sung in Gypsy Language, accompanied by guitar, mandolin and tambura; for percussion they use spoons, jugs, wooden through and oral bass.
The group generally performs with 8 members, but for their concerts they also often invite young talented Gypsy musicians as special guests.
Since the members come from different segments of the Hungarian Gypsy population, the group presents a wide range of styles and variations within Gypsy music and culture.
They present the traditional music and dances of the Gypsy people in an authentic and, at the same time, modern way. In addition to their concert tours abroad, they often perform in Hungary, where Ando Drom is considered to be one of the most renowned Gypsy folklore groups. They were honoured twice with "Nívó-díj", a high Hungarian musical award.'

Bugotak plays Siberian music in a traditional folk basis, but their musical references are so diverse to be classified by genre (let's call it Siberian Contemporary music). They even dare to cover rock classics, in their traditional Siberian instruments. The main idea of Bugotak's art is that only those traditions come alive, which develop itselves; stark traditions are subject to nobody. Therefore, the project declares itself to play in any style, keeping native Siberian spirit. Lovers of 'pure folk' should stay away, to avoid stagnation of native folk’s culture.
Bugotak is an ethnic project found in 2004 in Novosibirsk, Russia, by Sayan Andriyanov, a multi-instrument player and throat singing performer.
