Power-folk from Hungary

Buy music


Upbeat, powerful music with Transylvanian traditional roots, with virtuoso Jew's harp (doromb in Hungarian) playing, heavy drums and emotional violin and vocals. Their music blends ethno and organic trance. Music for your dancing feet, your hungry soul and beating heart with strong Hungarian spirit.

Zoord was founded by one of the world’s most known Jew’s harp players, Áron Szilágyi in 2014. The trio plays high energy dance music inspired by traditional Transylvanian melodies with virtuoso Jew's harp playing, heavy folk drums and emotional violin and vocals. They create a sonic world fully acoustic that may sound familiar to even those who like electronic music. Zoord joined forces with one of the best world music producers in Poland, Rafal ‘Praczas’ Kolacinsky to create their first album. It came out in 2016 and has gained success not only amongst the critics but also the audience like it very much. Besides the world music stages of major European festivals, they toured the coldest place on Earth, Yakutia in wintertime, played in Kazakhstan and toured Japan as well.

The members of Zoord are eager to give Jew's harp workshop and traditional dance teachings and parties at festivals. These events are true food for your mind and spirit.

Áron Szilágyi - Jew's harp (doromb)
One of the most acknowledged Jew's harp players in the world. Learnt the instrument when he was three. Has given workshops and concerts on 5 continents, has created numerous different music projects (e.g. Airtist, Navrang) and featured many other big productions.

Béla Drabant - violin, vocal, zither
Béla has learnt the violin and the zither from the last authentic old players in Moldva, Romania, where the really isolated Hungarian minority, the "Csángó" people live. He created the band, Flótás, playing rather authentic music from Moldva and gained big success in the folk scene.

Krisztián Almási - drum
Krisztián's played in punk and post-rock bands. But it well reflects his musical diversity that he runs a very succesful folk project, Lóca, that gives concerts to children. He also participates in traditional dance houses too, that take back traditional music to its original function: create community with dance.
