Csíki Jazz 7
The 7th International Jazz Festival
Random Trip – feat. Kasai (WD), Gereben Zita, Barabás Lőrinc (HU) & Luiza Zan (RO)
Gifted young musicians from the leading bands on the Hungarian scene play truly improvised music in all styles, jamming through the night every week.
Featuring the crème of local and often international musicians from today’s lively music scene, Random Trip is a real Hungarian specialty of its kind. It is not only a regular jam session in downtown Budapest, but due to the drifting music made up on the spot it has become a true crowd favorite, driving hundreds to the concerts every week. No open mic, but a jam session for professional musicians who take turn weekly at the internationally famous A38 Ship, creating joy music that spans across various music styles like funk, soul, reggae, disco, hip-hop, drum’n’bass, nu jazz, rock’n’roll etc.
Core members include drummer Delov Jávor (Turbo), the mastermind, founder and leader of Random Trip, and DJ Q-Cee (Vinyl Warriorz), master of beatbox and scratch.
Although Random Trip is about pure improvisation, during its 5 years it has become so popular that it’s been invited to all the major Hungarian festivals and main concert venues throughout the country. The formation has also hit Badeschiff in Vienna.
