Csík Zenekar: Ez a vonat elindult, hadd menjen...
Csík Band: If The Train Has Started, Let It Run...
"It is difficult to compile a new record that meets the expectations of music lovers following our previous album (awarded "The Wold Music Record of the Year' in 2007 in Hungary), which was so successful both among folk musicians and fans. We have tried to do our best, and we hope the variety of the tunes will be appreciated by the listener.
Many people wonder and discuss what kind of music has future in our ever accelerating and hectic lives. I think we all share those basic human feelings, trusths that can be discovered in folk music. So, if we play this music truthfully, independent of their age, lovers of all music genres will find it enjoyable.
Bands try to bring joy to music lovers in various ways and genres. I think in our constantly changing world, if we strive for the best quality, we can preserve the true values of old times, and delight our listeners, who are exposed to so many kinds of music theese days.
I hope as you listen to this music your heart will be lifted up as was minde when I played."

The group was founded in 1997 in Szczecin, Poland. Passion for the traditional music and hard work let them create their own style and original sound.
Their acoustic songs have been inspired wholly by Oriental culture, Balkan folklore – Macedonian and Romanian. Typical Dikanda’s style is creation of new words and meanings in composed songs.
Dikanda in one of the African’s dialects stands for family. This is directly connected with the group’s spirit – they live and work as if it was a small, loving family.
Dikanda's earlier work Muzyka czterech stron wschodu is more traditional (little or no rock influence), but is no less interesting: there's a real variety of sounds: haunting vocals, sparse instrumentation, and an almost eerie feeling. Sometimes the interplay between the accordion and the fiddle provides such feeling with so few notes - and then suddenly we're dancing.
Never a dull moment when listening to Dikanda!
