Vardos Gypsy Music

Gypsy and traditional music from Hungary and Romania

Vardos have enjoyed performing in Hungary and Romania, Transylvanian non-stop wedding dances and the latest horas and maneas from Bucharest.

Alana Hunt... "Violinist Alana Hunt is the live wire in chief, encouraging the audience to clap along - but in and at the right time please - by appearing menacingly at their tables, and regaling them with unlikely tales of drunken clocks, broken curfews and short-sighted shepherds" (Rob Adams, Edinburgh 2004)

Alana formed the band in 1993 in Perth, where Vardos worked professionally for five years.  Alana made many trips to Hungary to study Hungarian folk music with Beata Salamon (Meta folk music band) and gypsy music with Miklos Konya.

Sofia Chapman... trained as a classical pianist until discovering and running away with the piano accordion in 1993. It has been said that she "could play Shakespeare's complete works with her eyebrows" (Herald, Edinburgh 2004).

Sofia played with Xenos Macedonian Gypsy Band for four years in Australia, Britain and Portugal, and has been a guest musician on CD's of Zulya Kamalova and Barb Dwyer.

Indra Buraczewska... since graduating from the Victorian College of the Arts in classical violin has played in numerous bands in an amazing array of guises. She's been a saxophonoist in soul/blues bands, a fiddle player in Irish bands, an upright jazz bass player and has toured internationally.

Vardos was Indra's inspiration to explore the world of Eastern European music on double bass.
