Balázs Istvánfi and András Németh formed their bagpipe and hurdy-gurdy duo in 2010.
They both studied folk music at the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music in Budapest, and have been teaching since 2013. From the offset, the duo strove for a progressive burden (drone) sound with their repertoire involving a balance of folk music, adaptations, historical and contemporary music, and their own compositions.
