“The Live Inem Sargfabrik is a special album, the best Nigun made until now.
In addition, it's beautiful soundwise. More than just two musical worlds meet.”

ES, Zoltan Vegso, September 2016.

“Nigun’s music is not the consistent repeat of Balkan scales, but the rediscovery of the spirit of Jewish melodies though music. The concert was a huge success. They even had to play two encore songs, which were from their traditional klezmer repertoire and brought the feel of old Jewish weddings, and the powerful energy of their traditional dances into the house.”

"One will love the new album of Nigun whom are interested in how the old melodies take a new lease on life. Not word- for-word but redefined with an extraordinary, very unique and creative vocabulary.

“And then came total calmness. The closing number reflected the concept of the entire concert: vigorous start, incredible solos, abatement, and then back to the basis. I can only congratulate and urge all – whether or not they were present at this one – not to miss the next concert.”

“The musical material which born from the meeting of two musical worlds makes clear points, yet speaks through a universal language. Parniczky’s melodic developments and improvisations clearly coming from a musician who found his unique voice, which also naturally fits with Peter Bede’s jazz and folk based spontaneous musical communication.”

"Nigun had started their musical program with crossing East European Jewish music and jazz. Nowadays they speak more in the language of contemporary jazz, based on a complex composition thinking of the band leader. This effort is verified with awesome solos.”
- Gabor Turi, Magyar Nemzet 2013. August

“The name of the band means ‘song without words’. Without words, yet poetry… making my soul dance.”

“...on every occasion, the music born carries deep values and has international relevance.”

“Nigun is not trying to jump on the klezmer jazz bandwagon of recent years, but becoming a marked feature in the field of our improvisational music through the intense use of original material. 5 points out of 5.”
