Ladies & gentlemen, it's a pleasure for us to present you our special violinist! She is from Hungary and her name is #Inci. 🎶

What about her? 🙃

"I learned folk music in music camps in Hungary and in Transylvania. One of my teachers is a famous folk violin player János Csík (Csík Band). Constant self education in music is part of my routine. I have been playing and touring with multiple music bands. My main band is Lóca Ensemble. With this group we revive Hungarian folk songs and folk music. With my other band Uzsgyi I conduct regular folk dance event. My new project is Yukatengi, a post folk – etno punk band with electric violin and drumkit plays own experimental compositions."
