About Andrea

In many corners of the world, the name and of course, first of all the voice of Andrea Gerak equals Hungarian folk song. While staying true to her roots, she takes the listener to other lands too, let it be Bulgaria, Turkey, the Solomon Islands or Ireland. Traditional, world fusion or acapella interpretations: the singer with an unmistakable voice (often mentioned as "The Enigmatic Hungarian Female Voice") performs solo, in duos and accompanied by a full band, with some of the greatest musicians of Hungary, as well as with international artists.

Born on Ozd, grew up in Kazincbarcika (both in Northern Hungary, Borsod county), Andrea Gerak had her first stage performance at the age of 5. From a few years later on, she has been a member of several folklore groups, in the Borsod, Avas, Csepel and the legendary Bartok dance ensembles where she was often the soloist as a singer or dancer. You can see her dancing in the Golden Bear awarded movie Music Box by Constantinos Costa-Gavras.

She performed in most of Europe at festivals, clubs, exhibition openings, churches, private, corporate and community events, benefits.

Her singing fits perfectly in soundtracks where haunting, other times soothing female vocals with an ethnic touch needed (think: Lisa Gerrard in Gladiator or Marta Sebestyen in The English Patient, or Enya in Lord of the Ring)
