ANDREA GERAK - "the enigmatic Hungarian female voice"
She's been often mentioned as "the second Marta Sebestyen", Hungary's world star of world music.
Andrea's first A Cappella album with haunting folk songs from various regions of the historical Hungary has been sold out and now is here again, in a new, pretty design.
The first edition of the album was cherished by the general listener who came back to buy one or two more other copies, as well as by artists seeking for inspiration.
Sándor Fekete-Kiss fell in love with the opening track and asked Andrea to perform the song for the 2003 Symmetry Festival Budapest closing concert. There was born the 17-minute piece Madárka, madárka (Little Birdie) which closes Andrea's New Age album Árva az a madár (Lonely Is The Bird) applying the composer's unique technique, a new meditative concert form.
Effi Shoshani Israeli composer used the a cappella Madarka, madarka CD as raw material for two songs. Track #4 gave the base for Gyöngyvirág (Lily Of The Valley) which was featured in the DVD Hungary In Pictures and track #13 can be heard as lead vocal in Andrea's probably most famous one: the title song of her upcoming album Árva az a madár (Lonely Is The Bird)
