.: ABOUT VODKU :.

Vodku Band was reformed in 2000, in Budapest, Hungary. The band would like to present music of Hungary and Central and Eastern European peoples on stage, mixed with the band’s own musical conception. Besides the Hungarian folk music motives, folk themes of Central and Eastern Europe and The Balkan are also dominant in the music of Vodku – compounded with the style of rock, jazz, and progressive music. Hearing this multicultural mix of music, many peoples of Central and Eastern European region can feel themselves comfortable.
