Question for today: what is Mizrab?
1. a sitar plectrum used in Indian
2. composition written by Gábor Szabó in 1973 (Gábor Szabó lived and wrked in the USA in the 1960s. He worked with the best musicians of the day for example Szabó’s Gypsy Queen can be felt in Carlos Santana’s Black Magic Woman. The world star respected Szabó as being one of his teachers.)
3. A band formed in 2010 to bring to life songs by Mr Szabó and bring back the exciting 60s, 70s crossover that the outstaanding Hungarian artist gave world music.
In their music jazz is fused with latin-rock and eastern sounds, a mix which is spiced up by Hungarian folk. True world music … “which gives us true freedom.”
