Burdon Folk Band Short Info

Burdon ("bour-don" - drone) is a folk band from Lviv, in
the west of Ukraine. Musicians formed the band in
2002 and have quickly developed their music-making
to an impressive level and built up a rich repertoire of
traditional tunes, rural ritual songs, old ballads and
cheerful dances.
Burdon's repertoire is mostly based on traditional music
from Ukraine, Hungary and Romania. Their music is
based on age-old tunes in modern arrangements,
which paint a vivid, dramatic world full of excitement,
love, mystic and enchantment. Many of the songs are
taken from the local tradition of unique ethnic groups
who live around Ukrainian-Polish-Slovakian borders:
Lemko, Boiko and Hutsul. Some are from other parts of
mysterious Carpathian region, particularly from
survived Hungarian minority Csángo living in Romanian
region Moldova.
With all this multicultural mix Burdon creates its own
unique sound with female vocals, fiddles, bouzouki,
hurdy-gurdy, double bass and percussion. They
perform at festivals around Ukraine, Sweden, Finland,
Belgium, Moldova, Croatia, Hungary, Germany,
Canada, Poland and Russia, where they have easily
captured audiences.
