Biography

Slovakia / Hungary 1984 - present

The Ghymes band - consisting of Hungarians living in Slovakia - was founded at the College of Education in Nitra in 1984, by musicians with different preliminary musical experiences from classical through rock and Renaissance music. The years past have been like a “musical purgatory” for them. Folk elements have gradually clung together with their own individual musical ideas and GHYMES MUSIC was born.

The rhythm of the music has become tighter and sharper. In addition to traditional instruments (violin, viola, dulcimer, bagpipe, contrabass, lute, koboz, kalabash zither, Turkish pipe) the band has started using saxophones and drums - and without having even noticed it they have gotten included in the WORLD MUSIC category.

“GHYMES MUSIC” is rooted in Hungarian and Central-Eastern European folk traditions. Their Ars Poetica is the universality of music. Through their music they seek similarities and not differences in people. And these similarities have always been found whenever they appeared on stage - people of different cultures in different parts of the world have welcomed them warm-heartedly (Japan, Iraq, Jordan, Finland, USA, Canada). They believe that the energy and “magic” of live music is both the condition and cause of their success.

Ghymes composed music for several theatrical productions and companies:
- Outdoor Theater of Komárom, Hungary,
- Our Lives, 1995; National Theater of Budapest, Hungary,

    I love Tánc a hóban, Bazsarózsa, Duna partján and Smaragdváros the most btw. The last one gives a very strange feeling, in a good way
