Mario Rafael Trio

Hungary

Mario Rafael - piano
Tamas Hidasz - drums
Vince Bartok - bass / guitar
 

The band has formed in spring of 2014 between the walls of a music academy and from that year`s autumn we are regular performers of Budapest`s jazz life. The band is a trio: Piano/keyboard – Mario Rafael, Bass guitar – Vince Bartók, Drum – Tamás Hidász. We play our own compositions and we use more music style, which is unique in Hungary, mainly because in our music you can find quaver Balkan music elements with a modern touch. All in all, our music puts an emphasis on collective improvisations and diversity when it comes to music styles.
