One could hardly imagine a more surprising encounter than this joint appearance by the fusion jazz-hiphop trio Jazzbois and the 53-year-old Kaláka Band, Hungary's legendary masters of the sung poem. It isn't even so easy to decide which of them is the more daring to take on this challenge. What is certain, though, is that the audience is sure to do well out of it. After all, Kaláka is made up of eternally youthful performers, and the members of jazzbois approach both jazz traditions and hiphop ones with great humility, an attitude that is one of the keys to their amazing international success.
When jazzbois performed on the stage of the Jazz Talent Exchange in 2017, they were already a howling success. Many people have tried to guess how to pronounce their name: should it have a French sound or an English one? Of course, this crosstalk is no coincidence, even though no one in the trio plays a woodwind instrument. There are, however, keyboard instruments played by Bencze Molnár, along with Viktor Sági's bass guitar and Tamás Czirják on drums. In 2019, Jazzbois Goes Blunt was rele...ased by Blunt Shelter Records, which immediately catapulted them onto the international stage. The increasing attention they were receiving in the music world led first to a joint track with California's MC titled Kid Abstrakt, which was followed by a joint performance in 2022. They have been heard several times on the legendary Worldwide FM and on the list of the Brownswood music label, and Joe Kay, the father of Soulection, often spins their records. Their live performances are characterised by amazing energy, which the audience at the Festival Theatre will now finally get to experience. A frequent guest of theirs is Dombeats, that is, saxophonist Dominik Kosztolánszki. The dialogue between generations on this evening will be an unrepeatable experience.
This event is presented in association with the Hungarian Jazz Federation.
