ETHNO HUNGARY CAMP 2022
26 March – 4 April, 2022 @Babel Camp Balatonboglár and Ethno tour cities
We invite 20 young folk/ethno/world musicians and singers, aged between 18 and 30 from around the world, to participate in the very first Ethno Hungary Camp in the spring of 2022! The camp takes place in the south-west of Hungary, near the shores of the mesmerizing Lake Balaton, in a relaxed countryside atmosphere and the inspiring surroundings of the Babel Camp artist residency.
Ethno Hungary is altogether 9 days of rehearsals, music workshops, cultural exchange and leisure time activities, followed by 2 concerts. Amateurs and professionals are equally welcome! Any instrument will fit in the Ethno band (and if you can’t bring your own, don’t worry, we will arrange one here).
Experienced mentors will guide you through the process of becoming an Ethno Band from scratch in a short week’s time, practising peer-to-peer teaching and learning by ear. You will get a chance to share your favourite traditional/folk tune from your country with your fellow musicians, and to learn theirs.
There will also be Hungarian music and dance teaching workshops by local musicians, and every participant will get to share their own dance traditions with the group, too.
Our first concert will take place at the Babel Camp in front of a local audience. After that, we’ll travel to Budapest to perform at one of the coolest concert venues of the city, the A38 ship on the Danube, where Ethno Hungary will be the guest perfomance before a well-known Hungarian folk-fusion band.
This Ethno experience might well become the time of your life!
Don’t hesitate to apply on Mubazar! Extended deadline is 16 February 2022, 18:00 CET.
Only 20 slots available!
Participation fee is 250 eur (discount available for local participants).
Artistic mentors are: Nenad Kovačić (HR), Maisie Greenwood (UK) and Mátyás Egervári (HU)
