"Gloire aux gitans de Hongrie"

le Voyasa Band n’a pas encore soufflé sa première bougie, mais assène déjà avec aplomb une combinaison de traditions gitanes hongroise, andalouse ou balkanique, vitaminées par un duo basse batterie nourri au rock et au métal. Les musiciens ont précédemment fait leur preuves au sein de Romano Drom, Kalyi Jag ou Nomada ou aux côtés de la chanteuse Mitsoura. Joyeux et efficace, leur énergique cocktail entraîne irrésistiblement le public vers une danse débridée. - Mondomix - Benjamin Minimum

Bio

The core musicians of the group have grown up in the vlach gipsy tradition and learned the music and dance in the family context. The singers-guitarists and dancer have this culture flowing in their blood, and the lovari language is beside hungarian their mother tong. After playing in several well known hungarian gipsy groups such as Romano Drom, Khamoro, Nomada and Kalyi Jag, a romungro gipsy bass player, who comes from the hard rock scene started playing with them, a hungarian percussionist mostly playing in the hungarian pop got invited, and lately a hungarian jewish jazz guitarist and singer joined . Evolving together as friends they have built their proper sound between tradition and modernity. The primary aim was to enjoy the music and transmit this feeling to the public, indeed they chose the name Vojasa, which in gipsy language means Cheerful and it’s successful!The urban interpretation of traditions and compositions are sprinkled by other eastern gipsy influences without losing its very peculiar Hungarian gipsy soul. Based on the vocals and the powerfull rythmics of vlach tradition, Vojasa’s music is definitely sincere and authentic and contemporary at the same time. Vojasa is proposing a pop version of the tradition, sung in romanes, and sometimes english, they are resisting to anti-gypsy feeling in Hungary with their compositions and using their mother tong, the lovari language which is never played on hungarian radio. Vojasa conveys the joy of playing and the complexity of their culture between tradition and modernity.
