"The enigmatic Hungarian female voice", Andrea Gerak experiments with traditional songs, mainly with those coming from her country, approaching them from different angles. Traditional, new age, ethno jazz or acappella interpretations: mystery, magic, beauty, supernatural embraced in her timeless songs.
Andrea had her first stage performance at the age of 5. From a few years later on, she has been dancing and singing in several folklore groups in Hungary, in the Borsod, Avas, Csepel and Bartok dance ensembles where she was often the soloist. As a dancer, she appears in the Golden Bear awarded movie Music Box by Constantinos Costa-Gavras.
Today Andrea lives between Hungary and Sweden and is mostly involved in singing. She takes the listener to a trip to the melodies of various ethnicities such as Irish or Gypsy, and staying true to her roots, she sings Hungarian folk songs as her main profile, performing them A Cappella or as World Fusion, lending her unmistakable voice to compositions of international artists.
Performed in most of the countries of Europe at festivals, clubs, exhibition openings, churches, private, corporate and community events.
Full band available upon request: traditional Hungarian folk band (violin, viola, double bass + flutes, hurdy-gurdy, bagpipe, cimbalom)

"Your music is really great. An excellent new addition to Irén Lovász, Márta Sebestyén/Muzsikás, Karikás, Kolinda, Besh O Drom, Katie Panek, Csík Zenekar, Kampec Dolores and Ghymes.
But specially your voice is a tribute to the Hungarian female and worldmusic voices! " -Jan Villem
"There are many qualities of your work that I find thrilling, not the least of which is simply the pure beauty of the music.
Also I think one of the things I love the most about your work is the vibrant spirit within your voice. So full of life and mystery.
Its kind of like the excitement I feel when stepping on the ground of some far away foreign place for the first time. Not knowing where the road will lead, and so many fascinating roads to journey down.
Just wonderful. " - Jace Vek
