The NOGABAND music group, led by Michal Noga, is reconstructing and reviving old styles of Slovak folk music. In addition to playing NOGABAND, Michal Noga also works as a lecturer and organizer of music workshops and is currently working on his own methodology for playing the violin in folk music.

In 2020, the band released their debut album Stopy, which won the Radio_Head Award Record of the Year in the genre category World Music / Folk for 2020. The band was the first Slovak group in history to be included in the prestigious world ranking Transglobal World Music Charts (22nd place). They also achieved high rankings several times in a row in the World Music Charts Europe. The album Stopy was also evaluated very positively in the prestigious British magazine Songlines, and the samples were also heard on BBC radio and other foreign media.

At Crossroads, NOGABAND will play tracks from their debut album Stopy, however they will also present several new songs from their current work.
