Biography

What if Jimi Hendrix had heard the playing of a Transylvanian village prímás (violinist)? What if Bartók Béla were to have heard Jimi Hendrix? And what if YOU were now to hear Napra?

The common point of departure for the musicians of Napra is the folk music of The Carpathian Basin, Which they interpret in the light of contemporary culture, transposing it into modern sound. In order to do that, of course, it is important that the band members are well-acquainted with the folk music of the region and can move freely within this musical world, and that they are able to adapt its stylistic elements to any musical situation with ease.

What endows Napra with its characteristic power is a combination of the musicians’ outstanding instrumental knowledge, virtuosity and dynamic performing style, together with their blend of electric and acoustic sounds and instruments.
What might the line-up of a band formed in the countryside of the 21st century Carpathian Basin look like? Electric guitar, bass (guitar), viola, accordion, cimbalom, drums, violin and vocals, just as in the case of Napra? Perhaps… It might be helpful to try and imagine how a village prímás living at the end of the 19th century would have reacted if he had been introduced to the music of Jimi Hendrix, for example. Has that been of any assistance? In any case, this promises to be an interesting adventure…
Napra is a Hungarian group formed in 2004. Its music builds on folk music of Carpathian Base, playing modern interpretations of traditional folk songs. Napra mixes Hungarian, gypsy folk, and virtuoso neoclassical rock music.

    A Holdvilágos albumot hallgatom. Az elején azt hittem, egy nagyon gyatra, elb*szott próbálkozás. A hangzásvilág mű volt, de tényleg. Mire elérkeztem a Rég és a Ballada c. számhoz, ez gyökeresen megváltozott a véleményem. A Ballada c. számnál konkrétan elsírtam magam a szépségtől. A dal hangneme, a dallam és a szöveg iszonyatosan belém vésődött. Gyönyörű. Kinga hangja meg egyenesen mesés!

    A Napra tour through europe would be so great. "Jai a Vilag!" has an immense potential for an commercial success e.g. in Germany. But the promotion and distribution is really bad. Germany is a big market. Try to get an engagement in one of the big festivals here.

    Great band! I've seen them on Sziget 2009 for the first time and it blows me away! I had to import the CD because I didn't found a dealer with Napra CDs in Germany.

    I saw these guys live on Hegyalja Festival back in 2005. They were playing on the smallest scene in a tent and that was THE best concert of the whole fest :) .

    Hát zenefeltöltést valóban csak az együtes tud intézni, de koncertet meg mindenki, fel tud rakni:) Ez a lényege az oldalnak;P

    Miért nincsenek fönt zenék? Srácok, legalább a demót föltenném hallgathatóként, az új lemezt belehallgathatóként. És a koncertdátumokat is karbantartanám... A last.fm pont arra jó, hogy azok is megtaláljanak titeket, akik még sohasem hallottak rólatok. És aztán örüljenek. K>
