Meszecsinka

The last album of the band recently won the Fonogram Music Award (the Hungarian Grammy) for the best world music album of the year. The Songlines Magazine says about it: “…wild and messy, like the soundtrack to the rave at the end of the universe…” 
Meszecsinka will perform this year at the Worldmusic Stage of Sziget Festival – the second largest stage of the biggest fest in Europe.
Meszecsinka is one of the 12 best Hungarian worldmusic bands according to the WOMEX edition of Dal+Szerző magazine. The band’s name means „Little Moon” in Bulgarian.
Meszecsinka tours frequently all around Europe. They visited the USA and Canada, recorded video on the Red Square in Moscow and a Balkan road movie. Their art video “Kinyílok (I open up) reached the sixth place on the videochart of World Music Network (UK) and fRoots Magazine (UK).
In 2015 Meszecsinka gave lessons and workshops about Hungary in schools and universities of Denmark. A new art video introduced Annamari’s passion towards Spanish music. 
“Awake in a dream” is the latest work of the band, supported by the Armenian-Russian guitarist and producer Karen Arutyunyan. It was called “genius” by the Hungarian magazine HVG and “Maybe the best world music album of this year” by Magyar Narancs. 
In this album Meszecsinka goes deeper and higher into their unique magical world. A shamanistic video shot in sacred places of Hungary was presented on the New Year’s Eve.  In 2017 Meszecsinka performed at the APAP (Association of the Performing Arts Presenters) conference with great success in New York.
In 2018 their last album won the Fonogram Award (the Hungarian Grammy) for the best world music album of the year.
