Jávori Sound Machine

Orchestra, choir, ensemble


The Jávori Sound Machine, founded by acknowledged drummer Vilmos Jávori in 2002, strives always to create a special atmosphere on stage with their energetic performance of an amalgam of Hungarian folk music, jazz, pop, and Latin rhythms. They mostly play original compositions and traditional arrangements. Vilmos Jávori (1945) has been a definitive character of Hungarian jazz life for decades. He has won numerous prizes and awards including the Special Prize of the Montreaux Jazz Festival, the eMeRTon Prize, and the 1st Prize at the San Sebastian Jazz Festival. Péter Sárik (1972) started to play the piano at the age of 7, and graduated from the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music in 1997. He has played and made recordings with several jazz and pop formations, and has also composed music. László Nagy (1982) has achieved high ranking and won a number of music contests despite his young age. József Horváth Pluto (1980) won the talent contest for bassists organized by the Hungarian Radio in 2003, and is a sought-after session musician on both acoustic and electric bass. Dávid Jávori (1982), son of Vilmos Jávori, is pursuing classical music studies. He ranked 3rd at the 1998 European Festival.
