The Ensemble was formed in 1974 in Pomaz, in the early days of the folk-dance revival in Hungary.

Their successes are maybe also due to the fact that for more than 20 years the composition of the ensemble has remained the same. Since the beginning of the 80s they have made records and toured throughout Europe as members of the international ensemble Vents d'Est (Eastern Winds
