Guy Barash- laptop & electronics
Frank London - trumpet & electronics
Eyal Maoz - guitar & electronics

The Hungarian Cultural Center is presenting Sounds of the Ghetto, a special avantgarde musical endeavor as the finissage of the exhibition at WhiteBox. Grammy Award winner Frank London teams up with Guy Barash and Eyal Maoz to present a special musical program inspired by urban spaces that used to be Ghettos at a certain point of history. After the Trio's concert Luca Kézdy and Péter Szendőfi will be presenting their brand new duo program, Sequence. The improvisational program will reflect on the theme and also on the exhibits, created by young Hungarian Artists.


Trumpeter Frank London is a Grammy award winner, founding member of the Klezmatics, and leader of the Glass House Orchestra, presenting performances world wide.
Guitarist Eyal Maoz is known internationally for his work in improvised and new Jewish music, with the group Abraxas and many cds on John Zorn’s Tzadik label.
Composer/performer Guy Barash just released his first recording of chamber music. His first opera will be premiered this year.

Luca Kézdy and Péter Szendőfi have both mastered virtuosity to a different dimension. Their openness drives the duo, who does magic on stage with a simple violin and a drumset. Courageous experimentation and borderless improvisation are the main drives of the musicians whose creativity is beyond your expectations. They are using special electronic gadgets during their concerts which makes their sounding even more unexpectable and fresh. Their performance is sponsored by the Balassi Insitute and the National Cultural Fund of Hungary.
