Zhang Yu (Carolyn) is a coloratura soprano of Chinese extraction who Hungarian audiences will already know from her appearances as The Queen of the Night from The Magic Flute, Violetta in La traviata, and Liù from Turandot. She stands out from other sopranos due to her four-octave vocal range. The virtuoso Greek qanun player and composer Sofia Labropoulou has worked with some of the best-known figures in world and contemporary music. Her unique tools of musical expression forge a link between folk music, classical Ottoman music and the western music of the middle ages. Saïd Tichiti is a Moroccan musician and the first to introduce gnawa music to the Hungarian audience. This ancient and sacred form of trance music was referred to as William Burroughs as "4,000 year-old rock and roll”. The artist has influenced important musicians from the Rolling Stones to Santana and Ornette Coleman.
