David Yengibarian   (jazz, worldmusic)

David Yengibarian was born in Armenia and moved to Budapest at the age of 19. Here he founded different bands during the years and published 4 own albums and composed music for the theatre and the cinema.

David Yengibarian’s Trio performs mostly original compositions inspired by the Armenian folk music, characterized by improvisation typical of jazz and strongly marked by melodies and modalities of Armenian tradition. David Yengibarian’s music is progressively in search of new rhythms, exalting the asymmetric rhythms influenced by Eastern Europe folk music.

The trio, while performing, looks for audience’s reaction and improvises with humour and at the same time with provocative gravity. Armenian tangos, experimental ballads and Balkan virtuosity are distinguishing creations of the band.

The Trio will soon publish their new album “Mariage” with Màrk Badics, drum player coming from a funk, rock, jazz background, Istvàn Bata bass guitar player, member of several ethno, pop, jazz bands and featuring with Miklòs Lukàcs, one of the most talented cimbalom player of Hungary.

This summer the Trio will perform with the famous saxophone player Tony Lakatos.
