Cirkusz-ka

Anna Szlávics and Tamás Rock are a singer-songwriting duo from Budapest leading their band, called Cirkusz-KA. Since 2006 they have been creating their “Dream-Worldmusic” songs, born of their cultural roots in native Hungarian heritage and inspired by the diversity of music throughout the world. They enrich their original compositions with the sensuality of Fado and the energy of Tango, adding a flavour of jazz.

In 2009 they became troubadours and from that moment, they have taken their intimate acoustic music to various stages in Europe. Cities played include Budapest, Paris, Hamburg, Berlin, Barcelona, Vienna, Bern, Brussels, Ljubljana and Wroclaw and so on.

They have received a multitude of awards in their careers, including the Hungarian Jazz and World-music Award from Fonó Budai Zeneház in their home country, and in foreign countries such as Germany, a first prize in the “4 ums Dorf” Music Festival. The opening song of their album ”Lakes and Seas” was a runner-up in the World Music Network’s song competition, with music editors from UK Songlines Magazine and BBC Independent Radio as panel members.
