The meeting of these two fantastically innovative and original musicians promises to be a real tour de force.
Singer and pianist Tamara Mózes is a unique performer of the new generation of Hungarian jazz artists. Accompanying herself she sings standards and original material with lots of improvisation. She graduated as a pianist at the Ferenc Liszt Academy in Budapest, then went on to receive another degree in singing and improvisation in Paris where she produced outstanding results. In 2011 she received a French state scholarship. Of her tours the most memorable was her 3-week series of solo concerts in the United States. Without exaggeration or hype, one can say that her debut album was sensational.
