Veronika Harcsa - vocals

Hungary's favourite jazz singer, award-winning singer-songwriter Veronika Harcsa and guitarist Bálint Gyémánt have been working together since their studies at the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest. Having recorded four successful albums with Veronika's Quartet, they started to work in a duo formation, and decided their fifth joint album to be a duo recording. The launch concert of the duo's first album Lifelover was held in front of a full house at the Palace of Arts, the top concert location in Budapest. Now they have released their second joint album Tell Her, which saw its successful debut in the prestigious concert hall of the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music on 7 December 2016. Now London audiences can also enjoy the duo's wonderful cooperation, which is inspired by personal experiences and is informed by deep thoughts as well as humour. Contemporary jazz and improvisational pop meet in a highly original way in Veronika and Bálint's music.
