Babos Gyula is the most representative guitar player of the Hungarian jazz life, the driving force of the modern Hungarian improvisative music. “…If you do not know his play, you simply lose colours from the palette of existence and revelation, and they will never get back to you after the moment when the magic fades away…” His band, the Babos Project Special represents a peculiar synthesis of electronic jazz and roma music. Babos, as typical to him, selected the most talented young musicians for the band.

"Márta Sebestyén's first solo album features Muzsikás as her backing group and, indeed, largely follows in the mould of earlier Muzsikás albums. "Dúdoltam én" contains tracks with various approaches to Hungarian folk songs - the majority are performed with authentic traditional musical accompaniment, some have a modern musical arrangement and some are pure vocal performances with no music at all. The highlights of the album are the first and last tracks - both are among the finest of Sebestyén's career."

The group "Kulin Ban" was formed at the beginning of 2005. It tried to make a unique connection between old and modern sound led by the expression "from Kulin Ban's period up to nowadays" and on that way it popularized the name of a very specific medieval sovereign.
The greatest challenges of the project were different affections in music and aspirations of the people involved. It wasn't easy to connect different music traditions and colour them with ambient hues. The very challenge was the greatest incentive as well. As the result, their first album of the same name was published in 2006 by PGP RTS.
Since then "Kulin ban" has had many concerts and promotions. Conceptually, "Kulin ban" was trying to avoid the model of "the western" band system which behaves as a group of individual musicians that express themselves. The accent is on the community with its focus on the archetype in which musicians surpass themselves and become indeed one mind and one soul …they become one.
So, "Kulin ban" has never restricted itself to a determined number of "group members" or inflexible type of music concept on the stage. Freedom as a precondition of any movement, freedom of the artistic expression was, is and will be the priority for Kulin ban.
