The Genre


Django Reinhardt„One more round!” – the waiter was addressed by a fairly joyful and somewhat more affluent guest in a French cabaret, around the first half of the previous century. Gypsy-jazz music played in one of the corners, the venue was crowded, and the audience had no intention to leave… Gypsy jazz (aka. gypsy swing or hot club jazz) is a unique style of jazz, developed by the Roma guitar player, Jean "Django" Reinhardt in Paris, during the 1930’s. Since its origins are in France, and Reinhardt was part of the “Manouche Sinti” clan, in French, gypsy jazz is often referred as “Jazz Manouche”. The birth of the genre can be associated with the band “Quintette du Hot Club de France”, founded in 1934. The members of the band were Stephané Grappelli – violin, Django Reinhardt – solo guitar, Joseph „Nin-Nin” Reinhardt (Django’s little brother) and Roger Chapu – rhythm guitar, and Louis Vola – double bass. The band had a completely new sound, which soon rose to immense popularity – within a couple of years, they published several hundreds of various recordings.




Unique Sound


The lead instrument in swing is the guitar. At times, there are soloists, or duet performers, but in general, the line-up of the band is at least trio, consisting of a solo-, and two rhythm guitars. Naturally, the trio line-up can be supplemented by further guitars, or other instruments – traditionally violin, piano, or double bass. An illustrious native representative of the genre is „Még egy kört!” Gypsy Jazz Band. The formation was founded by the world famous violinist Roby Lakatos, accompanied by virtuoso musicians, and a vocalist with a beautiful voice – Roby’s daughter, Myriam Lakatos.

Roby Lakatos – Violin


A direct descendant of Bihari; who played on Dankó’s violin at the age of 6, and was included in Járóka’s ensemble at the age of 11. He was considered and treated as a child prodigy; at the age of 19, he already had performances in Belgium. Among others, he also played together with the world-class violinists Maxim Vengerov and Nikolai Schneider. Following his years in Belgium, Roby Lakatos’ concerts were organized by the New York-based Columbia Management – it was the time when he rose to international fame. Roby Lakatos is a world famous violinist, an illustrious representative of gypsy music, and the founder of a new musical style: the unorthodox gypsy fusion. From the Carnegie Hall in New York, through the Royal Albert Hall of London, to the Opera House of Sydney, he is known as the “Hungarian Gypsy Violin Virtuoso”. He inspires his colleagues, cooperatives and students with his stylish, sometimes extraordinary appearance, his musical skills and unique improvisation abilities.

As a child, she learnt to play the violin; in Belgium she attended a musical school. Her first significant stage appearance was in the Budapest Arena in front of 7000 people, alongside his father and other renowned performers such as Charlie, Linda Király, Margit Bangó, György Ferenczi.

He also took lessons from various guitar teachers. In order to maximize the level of entertainment, he regularly invites guest musicians to his band.









Noémi Flór – Double bass



As a child, I took violin lessons. Since I was interested in other forms of arts besides music, I graduated from the Secondary School of Creative Arts. Following this, I learn to play the bass guitar and the double bass in the Postás School of Music, and later I graduated from the Jazz faculty of Ferenc Liszt University of Musical Arts, as a student of Balázs Berkes at the double bass department of music. I received my professional degree in 1994.

In 2012, I earned a master’s degree from musical arts at the Károly Eszterházy High School of Music.

I was a founding member of the band “Wei Wu Wei” (recordings: Window to a Landscape, It’s Getting Late), and “Wee Dot Jazz Quartet” (Blue in Blue out). As a session musician, I played in a plethora of musical formations, such as the band Dubcity Fanatics. I participated at the concerts “In Memoriam Jaco Pastorius”, organized by the Radio of Hungary. I was a member of Swing Ladies Hungary Bigband, as well as Bódás Zsuzsanna JazzBarokk.

As the member of the band, I play double bass on two records published by Hot Club of Hungary, and I also play on two records of Flór Gábor Harmonica Summit; the latest of which (Merci, Monsieur Django) was composed in honour of Django Reinhardt.

At present, besides playing in Valaki Alfonz Band and Hot Club of Hungary, I also perform as a member of „Még egy kört!” Gypsy Jazz Band.
