NOTE: As it seems, there are four musical ensembles going by the name “Banda”: one is a Slovak ethno band, the two is a traditional Mexican music, the three is a russian R`n`B band leading Timati and the fourth one is Polish hip hop group from Radom.

The following text is about the Slovak Banda.

The musical band Banda originated in 2003. The band approaches folk songs in a modern manner, which categorises it into the ethno or world music. Basing on familiar knowledge and interpretive mastering the traditional, authentic vocal and instrument forms, the Banda creatively restructures and reinterprets folk songs and music.

The Banda members, who have vast experience with various musical genres, creatively enrich their music with other ethnical and genre elements, mainly blues, folk, beat, and jazz in a surprising way.
The band’s live production is very communicative and accessible to wide range of public.

Banda is:
Samo Smetana - vocals, violin, mandolin, guitar
Ivan Hanula - vocals, violin, guitar
Alžbeta Lukáčová - cymbalo, vocals, violin, percussion
Peter Obuch - contrabass, vocals, whistle, violoncello
Roman Kozák - percussion, voice

The Banda has successfully performed in several significant festivals and events in Slovakia as well as in Norway.
