The music of the Varkocs group is based on typical old pagan Slavic and Hungarian acoustic folk instruments. The aim of their music is to revive the songs played on the Jew’s Harp, as they are typical for various ethnic groups living in Slovakia – Slovak, Hungarian, Ruthenian and Czech. That’s why they also sing in these four languages. Varkocs repertoire is based on songs they learned from old village masters and found in the archives. They enrich them with a new flavor of imaginative arrangements and almost pagan energy.
