The Boban Marković Orchestra in Etyek - wow!!

We spent a fabulous Sunday in Etyek which is a small town just 1-hour outside of Budapest. Etyek is a cute wine producing town. It reminds you of California's wine country with its rolling hills and vineyards.

We joined our friends at a festival. The festival wasn't advertised but was intended for local enjoyment. We listened to one of the best Balkan brass bands. Boban Markovic hails from Serbia and leads his orchestra with great energy and skill. He and the band are known around the world. We very luckily enjoyed the performance among less then 50-people at the foot of a vineyard. The sun warmly shown while we drank the fresh white wine cuvée and ate artisan cheeses and ham
