Band

Our purpose is to leave genres behind and lift improvisatory music that is born in the inspiration of the moment, to a new level with an exciting instrumentation never heard before. – BOGA

The members of BOGA are the Hungarian ambassadors of “etheric music”, drawing attention with their far from ordinary instrumentation and unique sound. Their spontaneous improvisation is embraced by a hermetic perspective. Word has already spread about the unrepeatable concerts with their totally instrumental-experimental-psychedelic music, consciously created at the altar of the moment. They transmit the sounds of another, timeless reality. Those who listen to their music will be astonished to hear how the eastern plucked string instruments, the electric guitar, the violin, double bass and the clay drum open a door to a new dimension never heard before.

Although certain members of the band already played together before, the five-man lineup was formed in the autumn of 2018.

Sometimes, they play together with an invited guest musician to create a special concert. For example Thomas Gundermann from Munich who is the master of the Moroccan pipe.

The music of Boga is recommended for psy events, jazz and world music programs, sacred spaces, wine festivals, special cultural events, contemporary and theatre performances.

Members:

Márton Bakai – violin
Balázs Major – udu, percussions
Roland Heidrich – electric guitar
Vajk Kobza – oud, psaltery, baglama
Tamás Géza Szalay – bass guitar, double bass
