About

The singer-pianist Tamara Mozes took her degree in piano at the Liszt Ferenc University of Music of Budapest, and after she continued her musical training in jazz singing and improvisation first in Paris and later in Belgium. In 2011 she won the scholarship of the French State while in 2015 the annual jazz scholarship of the Hungarian State.

She performs original compositions from her latest album Moozing, and also presents her new material Cross Folk, based on folk songs of 7 different nations.

Her program offers an intense emotional and intellectual experience at the same time.

“We step into a soft and intense aura … Tamara can capture the audience and take them to her wonderworld. This is pure jazz with a feeling, both modern and classic, with many references and persuasive technique all the while.” (Claire Jalmain, Crest, France, 2017)
