Nigun was founded by András Párniczky guitarist and composer in 2001. Uniquely in the European jazz scene, the formation originates its music from the Eastern European Jewish traditions. Although Nigun’s music can be best labelled as "Klez-jazz”, the creativity and spontaneous spirit of its musicians are also very significant, as well as their attempt to combine different genres, as their lately released brilliant album, Live inem Sargfabrik (Fono Records) proves it. During the years the band scored great success with performing in many prestigious festivals as the Athens Technopolis Jazz Festival, Bravo Art Festival Brussels, Klezmore Fest Vienna, Jazz Festival Brno, Jazz Festival Bansko, the Mol Jazz Festival, Sziget Festival, Mediawave and Kulturfest in NY City as well as various events all over Europe and overseas.
Nigun often works together with guest musicians, as on their third album Bale Kulturnik (2006), featuring the Israeli saxophonist Daniel Zamir (Satlah). In the same year, members of the group participated in John Zorn’s Cobra performance in the Palace Of Arts (Budapest, Hungary) under the direction of Zorn himself. They also shared the stage with Don Byron, Frank London, Matt Darriau, Steven Bernstein, Miklos Lukacs (Charles Lloyd Sextet) and Dániel Szabó.
