On this episode of Rhythm & Roots, we visit Eletfa Hungarian Folk Band and go into the heart of Hungarian culture. Based in New Jersey, the ensemble performs folk music from all regions of Hungary, including Transylvania. The music, language, and people of Hungary are unique in Eastern European due to their Finnish and Turkish roots. Making music is a family affair and Eletfa carries on the tradition. Their colorful costumes, warm hospitality, and distinct musical style give us a window into the music of Hungary. Classically and traditional trained, Eletfa delivers with expertise and love, honoring the songs of their beloved Hungary.
