Budapest Cultural Centre

Established in 1979 by the Municipality of the City of Budapest, the Budapest Cultural Centre (BCC) is the professional service institution of the community cultural institutions, civil organizations and communities of the capital, yet its services are offered to the widest public. We have more than 120 thousand visitors every year, and the number of people who rely on our telephone information and consultancy service or visit our web pages is equally high.
The institution employs full-time cultural managers who organise different programs in a 2000 square meter building.
In 2012 our institution received the Cultural Quality Award which is the highest recognition in our sector and can be awarded to only one institution per year. Our institute is instrumental in supporting the communication between public educational establishments, and in distribution of the cultural values of the capital city.

SLOVAK-HUNGARIAN FOLK FESTIVAL – bit.ly/bmk_sk_hu

 Folk Music Weekend: A Slovak-Hungarian Folk Concert Series Live from Fonó

About the bands

  • The Fonó Band is part of the second generation of the Hungarian “dance house movement”. Their concerts and albums feature a quality interpretation of traditional folk music from Hungary and the neighbouring countries.Bálint Vizeli, winner of the 2017 National Folk Violin Competition, considers helping Hungarian communities abroad of great importance, and he plays at Hungarian dance houses in a number of European cities every year. He is a regular musician at venues like Fonó and the Hungarian Heritage House. ♦  https://youtu.be/RdAsK-lM21M
  • The Góbé Band generate novel but ethnic sound images by means of challenging the technical limits of their acoustic instruments. Góbé’s folk pop music is entertaining and contemporary, but at the same time preserves its traditional nature. This undefinable and elaborate “Góbé style” is the main characteristic feature of the band.   https://youtu.be/7Jz0lZMzujU.  
  • The Rustico Band, a trio formation, plays a unique type of chamber music based on Hungarian folk music motifs, and further enhanced by folk-style improvisations inspired by the moment.  https://youtu.be/Y2W0tp6nU00
  • The Varjos Band present the rather complex folk culture of the Carpathian Basin, through twentieth-century folk music collections as well as their personal experience. Hungarian folk music in Slovakia is in the focus of their attention together with folk music from Transylvania and present day Hungary.  https://youtu.be/tDBHgxP75e8
  • The Új Gereben Band, formed in 2018, is the renewed version of the Gereben Band, which had been active for more than three decades. In the centre of their style is improvised folk music with a wide application of two citeras, accompanied by the koboz, the gardon and some percussion instruments.  https://youtu.be/UJ_OqgR2SHg

2021: Circular communities – the European Week for Waste Reduction challenges

This year, the European Week for Waste Reduction challenges you to act together to shape circular communities aimed to prevent the waste production. These difficult times have highlighted the role that small communities can play in the transition towards sustainable consumption and production patterns. All organisations (non-governmental organisations, grassroots movements, businesses, educational establishments, public authorities), as well as individual citizens that provide waste prevention, takeback, reuse, recycling and composting services should be involved in order to achieve zero waste targets.
