Lakatos Rock Tales Biography
The idea of the project is to travel through the chronological evolution of rock music from the '60s, so fertile and enthralled with that new sound that involved the enthusiasm of millions of young people around the world and made artists interact of the most diverse extras, to our day.
The most characteristic element of the production is built around the legendary Gipsy virtuoso, Roby Lakatos. His genius violin “voce narrante” is accompanied by a multiform and heterogeneous band of international musicians active in the fields of classical, jazz and world music.
The originality of this musical program is based on the cooperation and unique sound produced by musicians who despite of coming from different musical genres – classical, jazz, rock, traditional Gipsy style – they found the common language of music: iconic pop-rock songs in a unique form full of fantasy and improvisation.
