Meszecsinka

“…wild and messy, like the soundtrack to the rave at the end of the universe… an East European Kate Bush or Cocteau Twins... trance-like atmospheres that recall the likes of The Orb and Ozric Tentacles, with the band conjuring up huge waves of rushing sound.” Songlines Magazine UK

Eastern-Eurepean psychedelic folk fusion with shamanistic approach.

The band’s name means "Little Moon" in Bulgarian, and it’s one of the 12 best Hungarian world-music bands according to the WOMEX edition of Dal+Szerző magazine.

The previous album of the band recently won the Fonogram Music Award (the Hungarian Grammy) for the best world music album of the year (2018). The new one, called „Stand into the deep” (2019) was released recently internationally by the German label “CPL-Music”. First feedbacks from the audience: „Even more powerful and epic than their previous album, the magnificent Awake in a Dream”, from the press: “Masterpiece”. This album continues the eclectic and characteristic sound of the Fonogram-awarded band. We can hear inuit throat singing, lullaby, Siberian singing techniques, love song, mobile phone recording, and trance moods that resemble ancient rituals.

In 2019 Meszecsinka celebrates its 10th birthday with tours in Russia, Poland, Kazakhstan, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Bulgaria, Serbia, Romania, Spain, Portugal.

Meszecsinka tours frequently all around Europe. They also visited the USA and Canada, recorded video on the Red Square in Moscow and a Balkan road movie. Their art video “Kinyílok (I open up) reached the sixth place on the videochart of World Music Network (UK) and fRoots Magazine (UK).

In 2018 Meszecsinka performed at the Worldmusic Stage of Sziget Festival – the second largest stage of the biggest fest in Europe, at FMM Sines in Portugal (and their tune was chosen as a main tune for the aftermovie of the festival.

In 2017 Meszecsinka performed at the APAP (Association of the Performing Arts Presenters) conference with great success in New York.

In the past years Meszecsinka gave lessons and workshops about Hungary in schools and universities of Denmark.

The breakthrough to the larger stages was brought by “Awake in a dream” (2016), supported by the Armenian-Russian guitarist and producer Karen Arutyunyan. It was called “genius” by the Hungarian magazine HVG and “Maybe the best world music album of this year” by Magyar Narancs. In this album, Meszecsinka goes deeper and higher into their unique magical world. A shamanistic video shot in sacred places of Hungary was presented on the New Year’s Eve.
