Among the main sources of inspiration for David Yengibarian's folk-inspired music are the Armenian musical tradition, Balkan folk music, the harmonic and rhythmic diversity of Brazilian songs, European and American jazz and improvisational music, as well as Argentine tango and its reviver, Astor Piazzolla. David Yengibarian, of Armenian descent, continued his musical studies in Hungary, where he became a sought-after jazz and world music performer and composer. He has released seven albums of his own, and has also composed numerous theatre and film scores. His trio, formed in 1999, has undergone many changes over the past two decades, and his bandmates included many prominent representatives of Hungarian jazz..
