Emma Nagy

The Emma Nagy Quintet represents the new generation of modern, contemporary jazz. Their sound is fundamentally shaped by the experimental spirit; the compositions include hard drum grooves, free improvisations, contemporary compositions in song form and other unique arrangements. Their music is characterised by contrasts and dissonance, improvisation and diversity, joy and spleen, a contemporary sense of life and a grotesque, raw utterance that exudes a kind of dreamlike charm. This diversity is not an end in itself, however, but allows the band to reach the deepest possible layers of chamber music on stage. The band, celebrating its fifth birthday this year, has already come a long way, having performed in Italy, Poland, Spain and Slovakia, as well as in competitions and festivals in Hungary.
