The return of Romengo from Hungary, masters of traditional olah gypsy folk music, who played at Tønder Festival in 2017. The music is traditional folk songs and music derived from the Roma culture, plus the group’s own compositions. Romengo have been playing together since 2004 and have made a deep impression at cocnerts all over Europe and also in Korea and India. Romengo have released two albums, Kétháné (2010), and Nagyecsed-Budapest (2014). Both releases have topped European world music hit lists. The band’s singer, Mónika Lakatos, has won several awards, including The Ethnic Minority Award in 2014 and the Anna Lindh Award in 2007.

Romengo represent traditional Roma music, but expand the limits of the genre through creative cooperation with musicians of other styles. For instance, Romengo have performed with the Mendelssohn Chamber Orchestra from Germany and the Indian singer Sumitra. This is their only concert in Denmark in the summer of 2018.
