Your only chance to catch this most astonishing singer talent from Hungary at London's truest jazz club the 606 in Chelsea.
In cooperation with the Budapest Jazz Club, the Hungarian Cultural Centre in London, the National Cultural Foundation of Hungary, the Harmónia Műhely Alapítvány proudly presents
Cintia Horváth in London concert
Hungarian singer Cintia Horváth has practically no „history" behind her, she has sung with no one famous. All she has is a totally amazing talent. She is still a student at the world famous Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest but she turned up at one of our talent-spotting contests and promptly knocked us sideways. There and then we decided that she is more than good enough for the big stage. September last year her quintet had the stage to themselves and, suprisingly, packed out and brought down the house. Early this year she was invited to the annual Jazz Showcase at the Palace of Arts in Budapest with such luminaries present in the audience as one-time editor of Downbeat magazine, Howard Mandel, the main organiser of the London Jazz Festival, John Cumming as well as jazz journalists and 606 Club's own Steve Rubie. None of them said what's customary on these occasions, namely that „she is very talented but not quite ready". She was deemed by all to be extremely talented and more than ready. So much so that Steve invited her to sing at the 606. This time you can hear her with this tremendous British crew: Tom Cawley on piano, Flo Moore on bass and Chris Higginbottom on drums.
Don't take what we say for granted. You can listen to the recording of Cintia with her own band at the Palace of Arts Jazz Showcase here.
If you tell at the door that you are on the list of the Hungarian Cultural Centre, you can get a reduction of the music fee which is £10.
