"The 17 HIPPIES are back! They are no hippies, they are rarely 17 (between 13 and 20 musicians depending on the gig), their musical background ranges from rock-pop to classical and jazz, they sing and play accordion, trombone, trumpet, violin, cello, clarinet, mandolin, ukulele, banjo, guitar and double bass. Their style is a quintessence of many genres: Bavarian zwiefacher, Russian songs, Polish waltzes, Swiss zweutletscht, Jewish freylaks, Anglo American popsongs, Corsican dances, Scottish flings, Bulgarian oros, French chansons, Hungarian melodies, Latin-American tunes, North American ragtimes and many more.

"Makám was formed in 1984 with the purpose of establishing a peculiar form of community playing music, a special synthesis of harmonies, trying to show the common characteristics belonging together in music cultures of different peoples and contrasting musical forms.
MAKÁM Group is the most characteristic Hungarian representative of the New Tradition.
The MAKÁM Group plays traditional inspirational chamber music strongly tied to the oriental music cultures. The music world their joint compositions is based on the scales of Eastern (ragas), Bulgarian-Turkish scale variations (makams) or the typical mood of the half-tone scales frequently used Bartók. Songs sounding like Hungarian folk ballads and arrangements by musicians with contemporary and jazz skills – this is what Makám offers in its last albums, including the newest one. The growing audience of their concerts proves that this mix works. The beautiful voice of Szilvia Bognár brings life and tenderness to the very precise compositions of Zoltán Krulik."
