    TUDÓSOK is a major representative of the underground and progressive music scene in CentralEurope, who mix poetry, music and performance into a uniquely powerful,original and special artistic language. Their music is a powerful seven-handeddrum fluctuation, a warm bass that pumps up the throat, a sax and trumpet thatpierce the heart, an organ that teases your lungs and takes you to the sky andlyrics that shuttle away the brain. Their art transmits a synthesis of pop andpunk, East and West through the power of atavistic improvisation, deconstructedrock, pop art and no wave jazz into a uniquely original scream joyful to hear. Theirconcerts bring you to a world halfway between Talking Heads and AlexanderScriabin, Nirvana and Mozart, Captain Beefheart and Theolonius Monk, Scrillexand Béla Bartók.
