Traditional Hungarian music and dance is one of the jewels of Eastern European heritage. Once intimately linked to the village world, where they enlivened every stage of daily life, they have gradually left the countryside. Today, the tradition continues, and is being transformed, especially in the big cities. Children, young and old alike, are enthusiastically discovering this artistic treasure, delighted by its incredible potential for personal and collective expression. Traditional dances and music are now taught to a wide audience and practised at dance parties with live music (táncház). They accompany many events such as weddings, christenings and various "official" or more intimate celebrations. Nowadays, Hungarian youth, especially in the cities, actively participate in táncház every weekend, and more widely whenever they have the opportunity.
During this weekend at the ADEM, the artists, under the leadership of József Trefeli, propose a vast itinerary through Hungary and its neighbouring countries with two workshops and a musical and dance evening accompanied by a Hungarian buffet. From one village to the next, the music and dances of the Carpathian basin - sometimes composed, sometimes improvised - will parade before you.
Dance : József Trefeli & Zsuzsanna Thuma Campi
Music : Felvonó :
Levente Székely – violon László Soós - brácsa
Dávid Horváth – contrebasse
In partnership with Conservatoire National Supérieur Musique et Danse de Lyon (CNSMDL)

Hungary has a rich inventory of traditional music that is respected well beyond its own borders. The dances are varied and are taught to a large public of all ages during workshops or live music dance evenings (tanchaz), which is another Hungarian tradition
The specific rhythms including asymmetrical measures (5/8, 7/8. 9/8, etc.) and the variety of melodies and dances appeal to the diverse audience.
Pat la Gadji
This is an intense dance with a pronounced feminine character, which calls on participants to dare to stomp their feet, to frown, to shake the shoulders, twirl their skirts, sway their hips and express what pleases us.
