Gypsy and traditional music from Hungary and Romania

Comprised of the brilliant musicians, Hunt-violin, Sofia Chapman-accordion, Kate Hosking-double bass

Driven by Alana's wild violin, chased by accordion and double bass, Vardos enchant with their theatrical and lively interpretations of traditional Hungarian and Romanian music. Formed in Perth in 1993, Vardos is now Melbourne based, regularly making trips to Eastern Europe to study with folk and Roma (gypsy) musicians.

This stunning trio has serenaded audiences around Australia, and have also toured to New Caledonia, New Zealand, Switzerland and Hungary and showcased in the US. Vardos had successful shows at the Famous Spiegeltent in the Edinburgh Fringe and Edinburgh International Book Festival in 2003 and 2004, where they appeared on Scottish television and the BBC News, and were nominated for the 2003 BBC Radio3 World Music Awards.

Vardos regularly provide entertainment at weddings, parties and business and other functions in Melbourne and around Australia.
