It's been a process to arrive here: from age 9, when I stood on stage for the first time, playing "Princess" in a local play titled "The Dancing Sheep". There have been hundreds of performances of different kinds: drama, musical, rock-opera, dancing.
The kickoff of a professional music career happened naturally with me: I simply was handed a mic too often at the local piano bar - till one day I said, why not to organise a solo concert. 2016.
It was a full house, lovely concert with Hungary's Nr.1. latin jazz pianist: Richard Revesz.
http://richardrevesz.com/ I was - of course - singing covers. In 12 languages.
Fast forward five years: I live in Portugal now and embody the only Hungarian fado singer.
Nomen est omen: my first own musical project, FadHúngaro - and therefore my first single - is a fusion between Portuguese fado and Hungarian folk music.
We recorded 'Se Soubesse' in a Lisbon-based, completely garage-style studio - then re-recorded parts of it in Budapest.
In the songwriter field you will find Luís's name next to mine, as he added PT flavours to the HU folk melody I brought.
In FadHúngaro, we have been mixing Hungarian and Portuguese culture bits.
Hopefully you will all be enticed by the first baby of that merge.
