"VOŁOSI is one of the most exciting, dynamic new bands on the contemporary scene."
Gerald Seligman, former General Director of WOMEX

"A spectacular live band, VOŁOSI should be on every festival's wish list."
Simon Broughton, Songlines

“VOŁOSI are a revelation – their compelling performance energy transcends musical and geographical boundaries to create a completely irresistible combination. I defy you not to love them!”
Mary Ann Kennedy, BBC

"Exuberant, original band."
Robin Denselow, The Guardian

Hypnotizing mixture of Carpathian tradition with classically trained musicians.

By exceeding the limits of string instruments VOŁOSI have managed to achieve a unique and original musical style - growing out of the Carpathian roots, but also bearing marks of jazz improvisation charged with rock energy and full swing of emotional content.

The VOŁOSI’s debut in 2010 at the ‘New Tradition’ Festival yielded all possible awards.

In 2011 they confirmed their success by winning Grand Prix Svetozar Stracina in the contest organized by the European Broadcasting Union.

In 2012 their first album entered the special World Charts Europe TOP20 selection.

In 2016 the band won Grand Prix Czech Music Crossroads Award at Colours of Ostrava Festival.
