Kodály Spicy Jazz
Denis Beganovič Trio

Kodály Spicy Jazz band is a young Hungarian ensemble (2017), whose members are also active in various music groups and perform regularly at home and abroad. Kodály Spicy Jazz project aims to enable young people to reconnect with Zoltán Kodály’s musical legacy. The latter marked the musical scene of the 20th century by discovering traditional folk songs and the use of their elements in jazz music. The quartet made new arrangements of Kodály’s folk songs collection in their own “spicy” way.
