Nart Orchestra is a very special voluminous orchestra: 19-member contemporary big band with plenty of winds, with eclectic music that connects distant points of the Hungarian music scene. Suit wearing classical music of concert halls, jazz, and baseball cap and tank top wearing hip-hop coalesces into a genre unifying crowd on stage with a dozen saxists, trumpeters and trombone players, with a DJ and a rhythm section behind them.

The own works of Nart Orchestra, formed in 2018 under the direction of Ádám Meggyes, is also characterized by openness, limitlessness and experimentation. Their best-known series is Fővárosi Rapcirkusz (Metropolitan Rap Circus), where, supplemented with MCs, they show the power of wind music to thousands of people year after year, but they have already held a workshop in Ghana, where they performed a joint orchestral concert, arranging the music of local artists.

In the first part of their current concert, diverse compositions from their newly released instrumental album will be reformed with visuals. The creative concept, having a big band set up, but also aiming for tearing down the walls surrounding the genre, creates constantly pulsating waves of energy from fine compositions to sheer chaos. At times it provides more complex emotional experiences using conventional elements. The members of the rhythm section are musicians with independent character, who fill the varying soundscapes with constant monumentality. This ensures a stable musical foundation for the band’s special sound. To close the show, the 1903 American short film The Great Train Robbery will be screened with a film accompaniment composed in the style of Nart Orchestra, in a live performance.
