Csardas in A minor and Doubledance of Kallo
Jozsef Terek is an outstanding Hungarian performer, and a popular musician of the Hungarian folk art scene appearing both in “Kivansagkosar” show on Duna TV and on Danko Radio.
His musical career started 30 years ago in his hometown, Tapioszele, but since then, he has performed on stages throughout Europe, America, Africa, Oceania, and Asia, and also represented Hungary in 36 other countries performing at various world music festivals, theatres, universities, competitions for composers as well as professional conferences. He is also a multiple nominee of the UK Songwriting Contest and a multiple finalist of the International Songwriting competition representing his home country performing his own compositions.
As a result of saving cultural values, there have been 25 CDs and a DVD-ROM released, and 13 books published since 2009. His career as a soloist began in 2015 with the release of “Tarogato as a Hungaricum”. Paying great respect to the symbol of Hungarians as well as to the performers of tarogato (Turkish pipe or taragot), he launched a series of concerts titled “Tarogato Hungaricum” aimed at showing the versatility of this musical instrument. One can listen to Rakoczi marches, the songs found in old Hungarian codices, verbunkos music, authentic folk music, Hungarian melodies, classical music, and popular pieces performed at these concerts. By incorporating his own pieces and renditions into the pieces, he has a unique musical program worthy of representing Hungary on the international scene.
Whenever the sound of the tarogato starts playing somewhere in the world, the hearts of the Hungarians are in perfect sync with it.
