Rávágunk a zongorára!

Parno Graszt has been formed for 30 years. The band's name is a Romani phrase which means "White Horse", that is a symbol of purity and freedom. They would like to demise the romani folk music from Szabolcs-Szatmár Bereg county tot he whole World.

Their songs are in both Hungarian and Romani and sometimes they sing in both languages at the same time.
The members of Parno Graszt are all from Paszab and they are all relatives of each other.

The band's lineup consists of roughly 10 members, but they can have up to 20 musicians playing as well as having a 10-person dance group accompany them sometimes.

The band's musical roots were collected in the immediate environment of the region they live in, Paszab and its surroundings. The band still lives in Paszab because they want to stay away from the noise and fleeting fashions of the big city.

An ancient and lively character full of honesty, energy and directness are the hallmark of the band.

Their album entitled “Rávágok a Zongorára,” released in 2002, finished 7th place in the European World Music Rankings; no other Hungarian band has ever reached this rank before. They have released a total of 4 albums so far.

Their music has traveled the world (Europe, USA, Asia, India) and the BBC produced a film made about the band.
Of course they play on the Hungarian stages. The Parno Graszt plays on the biggest festivals of Hungary and the most famous clubs in Hungary.
