Tcha Limberger – violin, voice
Toni Rudi Senior – brac
Toni Rudi Junior – double bass
Laments, Czardas’ and Szaporas from the Transylvanian region of Kalotaszeg
A world travelled trio showcasing specifically the folk music played by Gypsies in a small region of Transylvania with a universally respected cultural heritage. The three main repertoires played are Hungarian, Romanian, and Gypsy (a mixture of both).
Limberger was introduced to this style through local music camps, learning dances with music workshops on the three core instruments of the style, violin, bass, and brac. He was taken under the wing of celebrated violinist Neti sandor, the biggest name of his generation who taught Tcha the repertoire.
The trio features a highly regarded rhythm section, and Neti Sandor’s accompanists for 20 years, Toni Rudi on Brac, and Berki Viktor on bass.
This music is little known and I will play it as it is meant to be played. It follows the lives of many from baptism to the grave. It celebrates their communal existence and brings people together in the community of Kalotaszeg
