Who is Danubius?

We are a San Francisco-based Eastern European band, specializing in traditional and Gypsy (Rom) music from
  • Hungary 
  • Romania 
  • Serbia 
  • Bosnia 
  • Macedonia
and other countries in the vicinity of the Danube River.  Led by Jutka Mándoki and Barbara Deutsch, our music has been called romantic, passionate, energizing, and can be described as a cross between the genres of folk and Classical music.

We play both Western and traditional Hungarian and Romanian musical instruments, giving us a unique sound.  In addition to public performances, we're available for weddings, private parties, festivals, and all festive occasions.
