The Transsylvanians where formed in 1995 by Hungarian András Tiborcz in Berlin.
This line-up evokes the stories of generations of Hungarian life as told in the traditional songs. The combination of their different musical backgrounds provides the creative tension of the band and produces exciting and vivid new music.
Since 1995 Transsylvanians are a phenomena of today’s roots-music scene. Based in Berlin, the four musicians create with their Hungarian Speed-Folk a mixture of rap, rock, bartok, ska and punk. Their live appearances invariably turn into ecstatic dance orgies but Trannsylvanians can also seduce the audience with the ballads and love songs in their repertoire. The lust for life that characterizes their live shows. They give new life to the old traditions and turning then to now.
