If we think of Roma culture and music, we often think of the traditional and mature Gypsy music, but SziRom is also special because it plays primarily serious music.
SziRom is a band that is mainly young, roman, composed by college students, university students or musicians already in higher education. Our goal is to strengthen the social engagement of Roma youth, the activity of Roma young people, talent management, and help their careers with this tool of culture. Our goal is not to search for talent, but to give young people already on a classical music career at home and international level.
We consider it important to demonstrate the performance that the Roma provide in culture, in this case music, not only to regard them as social problems, unemployment, and inexperience.
Róbert Batyi, in addition to his own successes (and of course with care of his family), holds the Foundation for the Future for the most important mission of his life. Thanks to this foundation, the SziRom Symphonic Roma Orchestra can also be operated. He wants to make the members of the band aware of their role as a cultural mediator in society.
Róbert Batyi's plans do not go down in the countryside and in the surrounding country concerts, he dreams of going around the world with Siro, giving a good reputation to the Gypsy-Hungarian culture and giving the audience and the band members a high standard of music experience.
