Ensemble Táltos

There are numerous folk instruments and instrumental groups played during our presentations, showing their characteristic sounds and harmony.

Basic instruments in our play are the well-known strings: violin, viola and the double-bass. These instruments are accompanied by other, less usual folk instruments as: hurdy-gurdy, koboz, zither and numerous wind -and strum instruments. On our programs we are often making known these instruments and their handling in the folk-music practice. We play on concerts, in dance-houses within our country and also ab
