This time, Erika Náray will not present her guest's love of jazz as some secret and surprising attraction. Ági Szalóki worked with musicians such as Béla Szakcsi Lakatos, László Dés and Kornél Horváth when she was only a teenager. She was preparing to become a mother for a long time and has also been busy renewing her repertoire of folk music and children's music. The Liszt Prize-winning singer felt the need for "more calm, good feeling, slowness, softness" during the period of her pregnancy.
Ági Szalóki, who has Transylvanian Roma roots, still loves the works of Bach, Debussy and Bartók, but it became clear at an early age that authentic folk music is her true genre. Klára Bodza's student was only 16 when she first appeared on stage of the Katona József Theatre at the jubilee concert of the Ando Drom Ensemble. She participated in the Last Hour folk music collection programme, where she recorded the repertoire of primarily Transylvanian singers. For a long time, she sang simult...aneously in the Ökrös Ensemble, which performed Hungarian folk music, and in the Besh o droM Orchestra, which represents world music from the Carpathian Basin and Balkans. She started her solo career in 2004. Since then, she has been performing mainly with her own bands. In 2008, she put the most successful songs of Katalin Karády's repertoire into a new context on her album "A vágy muzsikál" (Desire plays music). Recently, she has also been interested in introducing Hungarian and European music of the past to children and even teenagers.
Audience members, who can take their seats at the Bohemian Event Venue from 6 pm, receive a welcome drink and can enjoy dinner before or after the concert.
