We would like, even during this extraordinary situation, for the Müpa Budapest audience to still be able to encounter the world's most outstanding and thrilling artists each evening - this time in their own homes. It is precisely for this reason that we will open Müpa Budapest's virtual concert hall and auditoriums - each night at the familiar times - by providing access to a single unforgettable performance from past years.
The performance will be broadcasted on our website and YouTube channel.
Solati Music was formed in 2016 by the internationally renowned jazz pianist Árpád Tzumo. The ensemble performs primarily in R&B and soul styles using jazz harmonies and progressive forms.
The group also features the golden-voiced Kriszta Pocsai, not only as a singer, but also as a lyric writer. He...r exciting repertoire combines her own world-class compositions with unique adaptations of well-known standards. In addition to her success in Hungary, she's also given two feverish concerts at London's 606 Club. Bass guitarist Tamás Heilig's life has been permeated with music since he was a child, as his parents are also musicians: his mother, Viktória Eszményi, is a singer, and his father, Gábor Heilig, is a composer, lyric writer and guitarist. Tamás is featured in several bands: he regularly performs with Random Trip and Punnany Massif. Drummer Toni Snétberger, who lives in Berlin, is the son of world famous guitarist Ferenc Snétberger. His playing demonstrates a perfect sense of 'time' and his inimitable 'feeling', both of which are essential elements of soul music. Tzumo and Toni worked together for a year in the Snétberger Quartet, which gave successful concerts both in Hungary and abroad, including at the 2017 Jazz Showcase. In that same year, a professional jury voted them Band of the Year on jazzma.hu.
On this evening, Solati Music introduced its debut album with guest performer Ferenc Snétberger.
This recording was made at the concert held at Müpa Budapest on 9 February 2019.
