About us

The Gypsy Jazz Band burst into the public consciousness as a highlight of Hungarian music culture in 2018, under the leadership of guitarist Róbert Kárpáti and the musical mentorship of the world famous violin virtuoso Roby Lakatos. The formation is a collaboration of outstanding representatives of the jazz genre and young musical talents. Since its formation in Hungary, the orchestra has grown to become the most respected and prominent jazz manouche group in the country. The orchestra is a regular performer at Hungarian music festivals, and as constant guest of several music clubs, they enrich the musical cultural life of Hungary on a regular basis.  

Several factors play a significant role in the Gypsy Jazz Band's uniqueness. On the one hand, they represent a jazz style developed by Django Reinhardt in the 1930s and originating from the Quintette du Hot Club de France, founded in 1934. On the other hand, they present this musical style to the local music-loving audience under the musical mentorship of Roby Lakatos, one of the most outstanding representatives of this musical style in Hungary, who has made an international career. With the musical mentoring of Roby Lakatos, our musicians will aim to interpret Django Reinhardt's style in a musical sound that combines the "unorthodox gypsy fusion" style developed by Roby Lakatos. All of this has laid the foundations for the creation of the Hungarian character of manus jazz.
