The Band

The music of the quartet is based on classical music, authentic and modern jazz, while its maintaining the traditions of these styles. The members are working on something new and unique, while reflecting the moods of every member. They combine lyrical melody with modern sounding.

The band was formed in the summer of 2017 while they were working together in a theatre play. Their goal was to take part in Jazz Combo Competition organized by Hungarian Jazz Federation, but they realised, that their musical ideas are pretty much the same. They hope that this band is the beginning of something new not only for them, but for their audience, too. The band won the third place at the Lauerate World Jazz Competition in 2018.
