'Jazz Spring Festival' In Budapest, 5 - 7 May
Guests can enjoy three outstanding concerts during this three-day festival, which organisers say is full of "kaleidoscopic features and cheerful freshness in full harmony with the mood of spring and the spirit of jazz". On two of the evenings guests can experience leading performers in today’s American jazz world, topped with a unique figure of the Swedish jazz scene who will also perform on stage at Müpa Budapest.

José James is an unmistakable representative of contemporary New York jazz, his gigs are magical mixtures of individual style, suggestive performance, jazz, soul and drum’n’bass.

Viktoria Tolstoy is a true, natural talent; a Swedish jazz singer who is proud of her Russian ancestors and who can sense the spirit of the different jazz genres with unbelievable safety. She and her quartet will not only be choosing selections from her latest, highly successful album; they'll be giving the audience a broader cross-section of her work to date.

One of the world’s most successful a cappella group, the legendary Manhattan Transfer was founded back in 1969, and they are still thriving – with new members of course. Alongside jazz pieces the four magnificent singers regularly perform pop hits and R’n’B style songs, too.

When spring comes along, Müpa Budapest will be the centre of the Hungarian jazz scene for three days: three gigs, three different styles and great new experiences awaiting fans of jazz.
