about

The album is a musical experiment, a fusion of progressive rock of the seventies and traditional Hungarian folk music. First, we took some beautiful ancestral songs and started to play some basic arrangements with one single guitar, creating interesting and unusual harmonic structures around the pentatonic melodies, which later started to grow naturally. This album grew from the love of our rich musical heritage. The songs come from a few hundred years ago, transmitting the feelings, struggles and beliefs of our ancestors. When we started to work on a song, we were aware that each one had some kind of plan with us, it “begged” for a certain type of sound, harmony, a certain kind of tuning or specific instrumentation. Experimenting is the key to take a chance on arranging, playing with 4-6-8 part harmonies, using the instrumentation of symphonic progressive rock music of the seventies.
During the 20th century Zoltán Kodály and Béla Bartók made many traditional folk songs eternal by collecting them from authentic and clean sources, and they used this rich knowledge as a base and inspiration for their amazing symphonic and choral works. Our point of view is a humble experience we loved. We think that it might give a different perspective to these deep, meaningful, soulful songs that have survived several hundreds of years and will hopefully stay for several more.

Track Name: Ágról-ágra
FROM ONE BRANCH TO ANOTHER

The little bird has left
the cage is empty
She keeps sayin’
It’ll be back in spring.

If she doesn’t come in spring
or by wheat harvest
If she doesn’t return even then,
You should know she never will.

My birdie, my birdie,
I will have a diamond cage
made for you
with a silver floor.

I'll give you
the sweetest bread,
The sweetest bread to eat,
and sweet wine to drink.

I’m not used to
living in a cage,
living in a cage,
I’m not used to walking on a floor.

But I’m used to flying
from one branch to another,
from one branch to another,
and to drinking morning dew.
Track Name: Rejtsetek el
HIDE ME

Wherever I may walk, even the trees are cryin',
From their weak branches the leaves are fallin'.
Fall, leaves, fall and hide me,
‘Cause my sweet dove
loves another, not me.

Love, love, such a painful torment
Why don't you yield on every leaf,
On walnut-leaves, on rose-treetops,
And let all lads and lasses tear off from you.

See, I've torn one and have blighted it
See, I've torn one and have blighted it.
Track Name: Szivárvány havasán
ON THE HEIGHTS OF THE RAINBOW

On the heights of the rainbow
a rosemary grew up
She doesn't like her place
She wants to hide away.

She must be removed from there,
She must be replanted to a new place.
She must be removed from there,
She must be replanted to a new place.

My sweet rose, you’re over the Malnas woods,
While I'm crying here,
In the fields of sorrow.

May the Lord give you
A good evening, my sweet jewel,
Shining sunlight
After a crimson day-break.

I would also like to know
When your way turns back.
When I see a red rose
in your hearth.

You should know, my sweet rose,
This will never happen
You will never see
My way turning back.
Track Name: Elmehetsz
YOU MAY LEAVE

Come out, lily of the valley
For the moonlight has risen.
I'll go out in a tall hat
When the day breaks.

I'll go out and will stay there
I’ll just button up my vest
I'll go out and will stay there
Thinking of my lover.

The door's open - you can come in
The bench is empty - you can sit on
The bed has been made - you can lie down
The door's open - you can leave.

Come out, lily of the valley
for the moonlight has risen.
Come out, lily of the valley
for the moonlight has risen.
Track Name: Ne mondd el
DON'T TELL

Hey! Secret love
starts under wraps!
Hey! Secret love
starts under wraps!
Though in the end it will come to light.
Though in the end it will come to light.

Strike up a tune, my sweet fiddler
Cause I'll pay you for it,
Strike up a tune my sweet fiddler
Cause I'll pay you for it,
I'll either harvest or hoe,
Or one night I'll sleep with you
I'll either harvest or hoe,
Or one night I'll sleep with you.

I did love you, I do love you,
just don't tell anyone,
I did love you, I do love you,
just don't tell anyone,
Until we get married on church ground.
Until we're married on church brick ground.
Track Name: Hajnalcsillag
MORNING STAR

The morning star is descending
My sweet dove is heading home.
She’s wearing light lacquered boots
The morning star is shining on them.

Wherever you go, my sweet rose, I wish for you 
That even the meadow should turn into red roses, 
Even the green grass should yield sweet apples,
And your heart should never forget me till you die.
Track Name: Szomjú madarak
THIRSTY BIRDS

If I were a river
I would not know sorrow.
Among hills and dales
I would silently flow.

I would wash the high banks,
Renew the green grass,
would let thirsty birds
have a little sip.

Have sown some violets
waiting for their blossom
and for my rose gone by
to return.

Violets are in full bloom,
They’ve just turned to blossom,
But my long lost sweetheart
did never come back.
Track Name: Eső
RAIN

I thought it was raining
Yet my eyes are weeping only
My eyes are dense clouds
Where the rain is lashing from against me.

Come, my dearest, let's make peace
Let's forgive each other
There have always been others in the same shoes
All of them have forgiven each other.

Hold out your hands, at least one,
Let me say one more word to you,
Hold out your crossed hands now,
Let's take leave for ever!

My weak heart hurts so much
Don’t know if yours hurts as well
So it does, but what can you do,
This is the way things are meant to happen.
Track Name: Nap
SUN

Shine, shine, 
Bright Sun,
My geese are freezing in the garden. 
Track Name: Úgy bocsáss el
SEND US OFF

The bright sun has already set, 
The surface of the earth remained in the dark,
The daylight has changed to night,
And has brought rest to the tired. 


Let us give account, my dear God,
So that I shouldn’t worry about my soul,
So that I can speak up more bravely
When I have to stand in front of you.


Don't call me, my Lord,
Don't call me unprepared
Lead me first to the soothing well
So do send us off on the long road!
