Djabe is the number 1 jazz/world fusion band in Hungary. Since 1998 Djabe has won numerous domestic and international awards and recognitions! With more than 50 recordings and concerts in 42 countries throughout Europe, Asia and North-America, Djabe is one of the most invited Hungarian bands to international festivals.

Djabe plays unique music in which the elements of jazz are mixed with various parts of Hungarian and world music.

They played in Baltimore in 2007 at the Paetec Jazz Festival with great success. This time they return on their US/Canada tour, with their brand new album Flow and some stage favorites from the huge repertoire.They have a special guest this night, László Szabó MD, Ambassador of Hungary to the US. Mr. Szabó plays electric sitar and guitar with Djabe.

The main composer of the band is Tamás Barabás, who at the same time is the most virtuoso Hungarian bass guitarist.

Djabe means freedom in the African Ashanti language. The founder and other composer of the band is Attila Égerházi who plays guitar and is the band's leader, and who interprets this freedom primarily by freely mixing styles and instruments.

At the drums sits internationally acclaimed Artisjus Award-winner and Grammy Award nominee Péter Kaszás, who was and still is the drummer for Al Di Meola’s band, World Sinfonia, for nine years.

Áron Koós-Hutás is a multiple award-winning trumpet player, who is one of the finest Hungarian musicians.

The keyboards are under the hands of the Hungarian musical life’s outstanding talent, János Nagy. He is an Artisjus, eMeRTon and Erkel Award-winning musician, who has played with exceptional Hungarian and foreign jazz giants along his career.

Djabe has worked together with several world famous musicians. Ben Castle British saxophonist (The Brand New Heavies, Sting, Jamie Cullum), John Nugent, Canadian sax player (Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett, Carla Bley), Malik Mansurov is the master of the ancient instrument of Azerbaijan. Since 2007 Djabe has joint concerts regularly with the former guitarist of Genesis, Steve Hackett. The outstanding project of the band, the show of ‘Djabe & Steve Hackett’ not only consist of Steve playing Djabe tunes, it includes playing Genesis and Hackett classics with Djabe. At the Garana Jazz Festival in Romania, they played in front of 13.000 fans.
