Koszika & The HotShots

Tales from Transylvania


Asztalos Zsolt – drums; Éltes Áron – saxophone; Cristina László – piano, synth, backing vocals; Koszorus Krisztina Koszika – vocals, fx and composition; Szász Csaba – guitar, fx and composition; Vaughn Roberts – trumpet and brass arrangement; Zonda Attila – bass, fx

Transylvanian Ethno-JazzPop Fusion. In more words: Funky fills and rhythms, jazzy-bluesy chords, spacey reggae feel, ethno-folk or even drum and bass influences are all important words that come to mind about Koszika & The HotShots' sound. Their songs take us either on joyrides, exuberantly energetic and wild, untamed – or on inner journeys back to the roots, talking about important principles, feelings, dreams and fears. Besides their original compositions they incorporate old folk tunes and rhymes in their modern, electrically eclectic sound, showing us how these hundred year old folk tales and tunes would sound and feel like in the 21st century. Combining styles that are geographically distant they bring together cultures – overcoming borders and genres. Best served LIVE!

Concert in 2


Ada Milea – guitar, voice; Bobo Burlăcianu – peasant drum, percussion, voice 

A concert played by characters, a sort of comical theatre set to sombre music (or sombre theatre accompanied by music that is almost comical), in which the instruments become the living support for the stories told by the melody.
