Mónika Lakatos and the Gypsy Voices

Mónika Lakatos founded her most recent band, Gypsy Voices to show off the fast pace and pulsating energy of Oláh Romani musical heritage. An elemental rhythm and the chilling harmony of center-stage vocals make Gypsy Voices the most captivating modern Oláh Romani formation.

Just like in Romanimo, Mónika is accompanied by her husband and musical partner, Mihály “Mazsi” Rostás in the Gypsy Voices band as well. Others featured on the album are Róber Lakatos, Ildikó “Kriszti” Balogh, Andrea Balogh, Dzsenifer Rostás, and percussionist Máté A. Kovács who plays the water jug and oral bass, typical instruments of Oláh Romani tradition. Gypsy Voices however is a more fluid formation, so the audience might meet other “gypsy voices” coming to live shows, making every concert a one time experience.
