Csaba Toth Bagi

Guitarist and singer Csaba Toth Bagi has been a fixture of the Hungarian music scene since his teenage years, well known for his powerful voice and his soulful and technically brilliant guitar playing. His rootsy blues and jazz style is greatly influenced by his Balkan upbringing, his Hungarian musical education and his years touring internationally with renowned guitarist Al Di Meola.

He was raised in Serbia in a family of musicians who later settled in southern Hungary in 1993 during the Yugoslavian war. His father started him on the piano at the age of 6, and by age 12 he had found his voice writing and recording on the guitar.

“ It's always inspiring and a treat for the ears to hear influences from many cultures all mixed into song compositions. Csaba's writing certainly falls into this category, and a treat it is! His sound is rich, his playing is great, and I had a fun time performing on the songs I played on. Bravo! “ - Dave Weckl

“ I hear in this spirited music offering from Serbian-Hungarian born guitarist, Csaba Toth Bagi his own claim to his roots and influences that are truly bountiful! “ - Al Di Meola

“ The Creator has blessed you with the trinity of musicians: Very strong and unique vocals, great guitar abilities and the know how to write a great song! You owe it to Him to share it with the Universe. You have the makings for greatness and deserve everything he has to offer. Go get the success and happiness that is yours! ” - Ernie Adams

Brian Soundy (UK Jazz Radio) “Aved Ivenda: A powerful track with excellent guitar from both Al Di Meola and Csaba Toth Bagi. Interesting to hear Al Di Meola's influence always there but an uncompromising Csaba Toth Bagi with his obvious roots playing through. A masterful track from all musicians. Dave Weckl in great form and a strong powerful but always in the right place bass line from the bass of Laszlo Mathe. Pianist Vasil Hadzimanov does all the right things to enhance the performance. A classic track!
