Ildikó Kali



Ildik√≥ Kali and her singing are recognizable from the very first moment. She displays a variety of colours and expressions. The singer and musician from Trnava released four albums with the band Romanika from 2004 to 2014 (Svetlo a tiene, Vlńćie balady, Milenka vŇ°etk√Ĺch a V hlbin√°ch). Later she started to perform under the pseudonym Ildik√≥ Kali. After the album La Loba was released in 2018, she chose a new unbeaten path and recorded an experimental album with the poetry of J√°n Botto, a Slovak romantic poet (19th century), set to music. Thanks to modern compositions, the old ballads and legends were given a contemporary dimension and it turns out that even these words still have something to say. The result is the album Zlat√° panna (Golden Maiden), which was nominated for the Radio_Head Award in the category of World Music/Folk for the year 2021. Its songs are ranked on world charts and successfully represent the Slovak world music scene. The album was given 4 stars out of 5 at the international music server Roots Music Report. At the World Music Festival Bratislava 2022, Ildik√≥ Kali introduced her album Zlat√° panna in cooperation with guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Peter Luha.
