Budapest Bar, a critically acclaimed and distinctive Hungarian Gypsy band, breathes new life into cabaret and chanson songs from the ’20s-’50s, re-creating the lively atmosphere of Budapest’s long-forgotten cafés. Leader Robert Farkas, an extraordinary violinist, guitarist, and arranger, is known for his work with Gypsy bands Besh o drom and Romano Drom and the quirky rock group Little Cow. He will be joined by his superb quartet on cimbalom, accordion, piano, double bass, and drums, with vocal collaborators from the rock, jazz, and underground music scenes.
