Some names from the past few years are: Gilbert Isbin, guitarist from Belgium; Roberto Magris, pianist, and Massimo De Mattia, flutist from Italy, Andreas Georgiou, guitarist from Greece. The SzaMaBa Trio has achived a very unique style whish originates from different exotic cultures. They capture the freedom of jazz and the Deepness os Far Eastern music resulting in reliving the ritual of Hungarian folk music. Their music bears deep mood and spiritual sensitivity which can be experienced only in the most authentic styles.
