Balázs Bágyi's unique melodic style of playing the drums gives a complex music experience

working internationally, leading his own bands over the last two decades. Being a member of different bands he creates music almost in all genres. He has toured the USA several times, and he is the only Hungarian jazz musician who regularly plays in China. His previous quartet, existed from 2004 - 2011, was a very important band on the Hungarian ethno-jazz a world music scene.

The music of his new quartet contains less of the folk background but sounds like today' s pure acoustic jazz based on post bop elements. His partners are the best players of the young generation from Budapest, as saxophonist Soso Lakatos, who studied and got his diploma in Amsterdam, the classically trained Junior Prima awarded pianist Dezső Oláh, and Péter Oláh, one of the greatest bass players in Central Europe. During the recent years the band played at many European jazz festivals (Bratislava Jazz Days, Jazz Juniors Krakow, Bansko Jazz Festival, Nisville, Mosaic Jazz Fest Sibiu, Sarajevo Winter, Petrovac Jazz Festival, Skopje Summer Festival…), and performed at a few really famous jazz clubs as well (Agharta Jazz Club Prague, B-Flat Berlin, Jazzland Wien). 

In 2016 their album Homage to Shakespeare featuring vocalist Kriszta Pocsai won Gramofon Award, given by an international jury, then they became “ the band of the year” on the JazzMa.hu online magazine’s readers poll. The quartet plays the original music of the bandleader who won the category “the composer of the year” on the same poll in 2016. (More info: www.balazsbagyi.com)
