Next year will be better, or so they say. On 2012 there are thousands of sensational speculations that have been there for two or three years. Among many, that the Mayan calendar predicted the end of the world for the beginning of 2012. That´s not happened nor will it happen. Maybe, something that the calendar was right about was in the change and the end of many ideas that we´ve had on reality and its structure, on the inconsistent way in which capitalism hasn´t been able to control its networks and, from the United States to Europe and back, due to the bad handling of investments of many thousands of people, as well as political abuse against the working rights of many people, we´ve reached a global crisis.
The word ´crisis´ is today one of the most widely used in global language. This can be translated with some Google and seeing the results on social networks. Inadvertently, the social networks have unleashed a wave of text and information exacerbating the crisis from a problem which was essentially economical. And it´s not about dis-informing, of living in denial about what´s happening or turning one´s back on things, but more about understanding that the essence of the problem is in the language, and therefore we have to be alert towards other things such as music, art or travelling. There are ways of getting rid of the problems, which aren´t necessarily expensive and totally accessible.
The New Year´s Eve parties are usually a moment of excess around the world. We believe that, getting ridiculously drink and dancing, we will leave behind a year which hasn´t gone according to plan with our wishes. But a party is a party and it can happen on any day. Maybe the best thing to do to celebrate and say goodbye to the year gone by is to pay attention to music and see what it says to us, which new options it offers us and think a bit about it. Being drunk and dancing is very easy, but listening to beautiful melodies is more important.
For that, the concert of Amadinda and GĂĄbor Presser on the 31st of December is an option to unwind from the noise of the party and enter another musical dimension. Amadinda is a unique percussion band who began their career in Budapest in 1984, and since then present compositions of contemporary Hungarian music in different formats, from the most traditional to the most minimal. GĂĄbor Presser is another experimental musician who remains classic. He makes electronic compositions of classical and modern pieces. This concert is a chance to get to understand that the frontiers of traditional and improvisation are very light and, on the contrary, can go hand in hand in such an important place like the Palace of Art in Budapest.
It will undoubtedly be a night of the bestÂ contemporary Hungarian music. Recommended for fans of international contemporary music and experimentation. For more information visit the following website:Â http://mupa.hu/en/
Get apartments in Budapest and enjoy this fabulous concert to send the year off.
