When reading this latest update, the  HSFE  The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble has already flew over to the United States of America and have had their 1st U.S. performance. The 3 months North American tour began on Sunday, 15. September, 2013 in California at the Marin Center in San Rafael, and Canada. A little background about the U.S. tour of  the HSFE … Within a short time the MÁNE group is back in States for the second occasion. In 2007 they were performing with their show titled: „Hungarian Concerto”. Ninety thousand individuals were interested to pay a visit to their show, At the time being, the American concert promoter company had already indicated they would like to have sometime in the future the group back again.

The time has come with already planned 70 performances in the United States of America from East-to-West …  North to South and Canada.

The Hungarian Rhapsody is deeply devoted to the Hungarian folk music, rooted in the nineteenth century, This is full of character, with nothing unmistakable new genre that origins back-and-forth to playing folk and art music sidelines. It had powerful meaning to the Hungarian and non-Hungarian culture which influenced creators such as Brahms, Berlioz and Liszt. The „Hungarian Rhapsody” preformance is based on the marks of the genre itself, drawing on the tradition, taking inspiration to create its own unique dance rhapsody. The genre is characterized by Rhapsody, as a distraction, emotions, thoughts passionate surge of freedom of expression. Successive changes dynamically appear in images of the Hungarian peasant tradition of churning diversity. Most probably the audience will hold their breath when seeing the men at the acrobatics dances and as well, recognize the soft lyrical emotion move in the women dances, not to mention the virtuosity at the couple of dances. The beautiful melodies of folk culture can be visioned in their dance plays. The list of the performances dates and the scenes are wide, yet  there maybe folks  who will not be able to see the NÁNE in person at their city, therefore see below  the collected venues where they will show up and hopefully  for those of interest still will have enough time to go and have a little bit  of pleasure, an evening out at the traditional Hungarian moody dancer show.
