Rafael Mário, Junior Prima Award-winning pianist and bandleader, graduated from the Liszt Ferenc University of Music and then became acquainted with the world of jazz in Toronto. He worked as a successful studio musician in Canada, then returned home years later and founded the Rafael Mário Trio in 2014, releasing several recordings.

The music of his trio is difficult to classify into style categories. The band places a strong emphasis on collective improvisation and the creation of original sound, for which they draw from a variety of sources: their compositions and their interpretations include elements of mainstream as well as contemporary jazz, elements of Latin musical trends and hip hop grooves. The musicians of the trio graduated from the Department of Jazz at the Liszt Ferenc University of Music, but in addition to jazz, they also see popular music trends as a constant source of inspiration, which can be traced in the bold and widespread use of electronic effects. Jazz with the boost of hip hop – their latest album, Blessing, and songs from another trio recording to be released soon, are also offering this experience to the audience.
