"Danubius is great. Especially live."

Who is Danubius?

We are a San Francisco-based Eastern European band, specializing in traditional and Gypsy (Roma) music from Hungary, and additionally from
  • Transylvania 
  • Romania
  • Serbia 
  • Russia
  • Macedonia
and other countries in the vicinity of the Danube River.  Led by Hungarian-American musicians 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!
