Félix Lajkó, Ferenc Liszt award winner, violinist and composer, was born in Topolya (Transylvania) in 1974. His first instrument was a zither that he learnt to play at the age of ten. He held a violin for the first time during his sixth year at primary school. Leaving his second-year class at music school behind him, he headed for Budapest with a borrowed violin… and since then he’s been travelling around the world in various musical guises, captivating audiences with his performances on violin and zither.
He has collaborated with famous groups and musicians such as György Szabados, Boris Kovač, the French band Noir Désir, Alexander Balanescu, Boban Marković, and Roby Lakatos. Since 1994, he has released several albums and composed music for the theatre and soundtracks.
