Venue: Zoo Budapest, Main Entrace Square
Péter Geszti – LétVágy

After the success of Rapülők, Jazz+Az, and Gringo Sztár, showman Péter Geszti started his most recent project, GESZTI, in the spring of 2016.His new album is called Létvágy (Lust for Life) which features 14 songs, 13 performers, and 11 composers, and took 18 months to create. The songs on LétVágy evoke the spirit of Repülők and Jazz+Az in a contemporary way. Accordig to Péter Geszti,„It’s both retro and modern. Retro because you have gotten older since you first heard my music and as modern as you yourself feel young. I am a man of many emotions, so the songs come in all sorts of moods and styles.It’s the fifty-one shades of being Geszti.”

Budapest Bar - August 24, 2016 Wednesday - 8:30pm (rain date: 08.25.2016)
Venue: Zoo Budapest, Main Entrace Square
Budapest Bar

Extraordinary performers, an amazing band, and great songs – this is the recipe of Budapest Bár’s wild success. Budapest Bár redefined the way we think about how a gypsy band could sound. It showed us how to rework long-forgotten songs that were thought to be old fashioned. Year after year, Budapest Bár attracts a huge audience to the Budapest Zoo for their sold-out shows, and they are very happy to prepare for their next show this August. The concert will showcase some old favourites as well as this summer’s new and refreshed repertoire. Featured singers include Dóri Behumi, Bori Rutkai, Juci Németh, László Kollár-Klemencz, and Misi Mező.
