Nóri not only sings, carefully preserving the authentic and rustic character of her folk songs but also creatively adapts the songs to the framework of today’s popular music culture.
The highlight of the performances are the different, cheerful, pulsating rhythms and the thought provoking, relaxing, lyrical folk songs which create an irresistible desire in the audience to dance along to the music.
Nóri has gathered together a team of professional musicians. In the production named Motivathe distinctive folk sounds are produced by the flute and violin and the desired musical package is completed using the guitar, base guitar and other modern electronic instruments. They also cover folk songs from their own collection, the most famous of which is the song “Love, Love” performed together with a native Transylvanian singer.
The Motiva is an exceptional performance and extremely popular. The video clips on the internet have been viewed by thousands of people. The radio and TV channels are constantly playing the songs. Having won over their home fans, they have taken their concerts to an international level by performing in more than twenty other countries. Many messages of support have been received from fans, speaking very highly of the concerts and encouraging the band to continue to produce such excellent material.
The performance of the Motiva touches all age-groups. In the music, young people discover sounds their hearts cherish, just like their parents and grandparents, who were familiar with the original songs and now welcome the new versions that are updated and enhanced by a more modern musical style.
