Hungarian folk band Eletfa brings to life the rich music and dance traditions of rural Hungary. Consisting of 17-year-old lead violinist, Bence Kalan, and musicians born in both Hungary and the US, Elefta pays tribute to the local Hungarian heritage by performing in Manhattan’s Yorkville neighborhood.

Eletfa is deeply connected to the Hungarian community in North America and has helped sustain its existence by organizing dance events that respect the authentic regional styles of Hungarian culture.
