The Hungarian musician Sándor Szabó coaxes his listeners gently – but all the more convincingly – into his own musical universe.
In the late 1970s, following an extensive study of music from various cultures, Szabó began focusing more and more on improvisation. But the Arab, Indian, Far-Eastern and even native influences on his guitar music remain quite audible. It's not only his musical vocabulary that is unusual. He amazes the listener, he is a seducer, and anyone with even the slightest appreciation of uncann< sounds will follow him willingly. On top of that, uses some instruments that were custom-made for him, like a 16-string steel-string guitar and a classical guitar with 8 strings.
