Ibolya Oláh's big comeback, her victory in the 2022 season of the television music show A Dal (‘The Song') with her composition Nem adom el (‘It is Not For Sale'), marks a new milestone in the singer's career. It was exactly twenty years ago, on the 2003 Megasztár talent show, that this raspy-voiced artist of rare profundity finished second in the music competition and then quickly gained great popularity as a singer. Now she is coming to Müpa Budapest to perform her 2023 album Gyere közelebb (‘Come Closer').
Ibolya Oláh dove into the music world as a self-taught artist, and her instinctive talent soon revealed itself, making her one of the stars of the first major Hungarian TV musical talent shows of the 21st century. There exists no better proof of this than the fact that it was the songwriting duo of Gábor Presser and Dusán Sztevanovity who would go on to write part of the material for her 2004 debut album, with Péter Novák supplying the other half. After her song Magyarország (‘Hungary') fr...om her second album turned into one of her biggest hits, she continued to enjoy entertainment success in theatre and film roles. After setting verses by contemporary poets to music, the next milestone was winning A Dal 2022, whereupon fresh music began to arrive with renewed force. Coming out later that same year was her fifth LP (Nem adom el), with songs written for her by composer Sándor Födő and lyricists György Hegyi and Vivien Csakmag. The recipe proved successful, and it would be the same trio that generated the guitar-based music for 2023's Gyere közelebb. Oláh is bringing her own band to this concert, along with the sincerity and musical depth we have come to expect from her. Making a guest appearance will be Viki Lábas, her duet partner in the title song of the new album. This pairing on stage promises to be an interesting one, as this will be their first time singing the song live.
