Hunor G. Szabo is a well-respected drummer and composer in Hungary’s jazz and pop scene. The characteristic flavour of his playing and style are inspired mainly by the music and sound of the 60s, and his professional music career goes hand-in-hand with a passion for vintage drums and instruments.

Born in 1979 in Mezőtúr, a small farming town in Hungary, it was there he began his musical education attending drum, guitar and Hungarian folk music classes. In 2004, he graduated as a jazz drummer from the prestigious Liszt Ferenc Music Academy, in Budapest.

Since his college years he has been an active and important member in the Budapest music scene, and is credited with several of his own in addition to many side projects.
