Help me identify this band I heard. Hungarian / Russian / Czech / Other Easter European folk orchestra?

It was very dark and haunting kind of folk ensemble. First you might hear a solo female voice, very ... warbly. And then a whole chorus would come in, also very rough sounding. There were cymbals, bass drums and tubas. Almost all in a minor key. Sounded like something you'd hear during a 19th century peasant's funeral, maybe.
I've been searching for this music forever, it was so beautiful.
Any ideas? FWIW I heard it when I was living with British expats overseas.
