Meszecsinka is a child of a love affair, started under the full moon. She is intimate, magical and fragile, as any child of love. Meszecsinka sings in seven languages (Hungarian, Spanish, Russian, Bulgarian, Finnish, Arabian and Ai – introduced in their new EP), comes from four countries (Hungary, Bulgaria, Croatia and Poland) and leads you into a Wonderland, where Bulgarian and Hungarian folk lives together with flamenco and funky, Oriental and experimental.
The members come from internationally acknowledged bands (Korai Öröm, Fokatelep, Kampec Dolores) to this inner place with one purpose: to feel good and to do only what they really want to do.
The music made with this attitude reached many people, the band has performed in the biggest venues of Hungary like Millenáris or Palace of Arts and at many festivals in the country and abroad (Germany, Austria, Greece, Croatia, Poland, Slovenia, Slovakia, Bulgaria).
In 2013 Meszecsinka visited North-America and played 13 concerts in 11 cities of USA and Canada, including major clubs of cities like New York and Toronto.
In 2014 the band played in Moscow and recorded a homemade video on the Red Square. In July the band released an art video, which reached the sixth place on the videochart of World Music Network (UK) and fRoots Magazine (UK).
The second album “Kinyílok” (I open up) was presented during the band’s 2014 German tour.
2015 – frequent tours in Europe and new EP, introducing the new sound of Meszecsinka.
In September 2015 the band gave lessons and workshops about Hungary in schools and universities of Denmark. A new art video introduced Annamari’s passion towards Spanish music. Meszecsinka performed at WOMEX (World Music Expo) in Budapest and was mentioned as one of the 12 best Hungarian worldmusic bands accoring to the WOMEX edition of Dal+Szerző magazine.
2016 started with the presentation of a road movie video, made during Meszecsinka’s Balkan tour in Summer 2015.

“…ecstatic self-awareness, lascivious dancing, blissfully screaming and staggering sensual happiness. The vocal magician is Annamaria, an elfin singer with flowing gestures, dances barefoot on the floor while her voice wanders with fluttering vibrato and throaty tone” Deggendorfer Zeitung
“With her captivating interpretation and the mood spread in the audience, the band might fit on the stage of the world’s major music festivals”. Freie Klaenge
“The intimate and chanson moments come along with the sweeping, rockandroll riffs; a dense and palpable atmosphere pervades everything. Beyond the musical components there is the essence of the Paneuropean culture”. Brilliant album!” Lángoló Gitárok
“First class world music”
“Intimate, acoustic and passionate moon”
“Specialists would call it psychedelic new wave folk”.
