Formed in 2001, Hungary based four-piece Nigun boast an international fan base, having forged a unique signature sound that originates in Eastern European Jewish music and spontaneous jazz improvisation. They have performed more than 300 gigs around the world including New York Guggenheim Museum, Brussels Bravo Art Festival, Athens Technopolis Jazz Festival, Klezmor Festival Vienna. The band often works together with guest musicians such as John Zorn, Don Byron, Frank London, Matt Darriau, Steven Bernstein or Miklós Lukács.
“For me this wonderful story principally means the manifestation of team unity, which ultimately results in extraordinary music in an extraordinary medium. Not incidentally I reckon Nigun’s album is the best of this year’s Hungarian concert albums for the time being.” Sandor Olasz, Riff 2016.
“Nigun had started their musical program with crossing East European Jewish music and jazz. Nowadays they speak more in the language of contemporary jazz, based on a complex composition thinking of the band leader. This effort is verified with awesome solos.” Gabor Turi, Magyar Nemzet 2014.
“One will love the new album of Nigun whom are interested in how the old melodies take a new lease on life. Not word-for-word but redefined with an extraordinary, very unique and creative vocabulary.” Balint Bereczki, Jazzma.hu 2013.
