Originally educated in jazz, he also draws on a wide range of influence from Bartók’s music to Native American culture.

Having many generations of painters and sculptors in his family, Lőrinc’s affinity to visual arts is important. He describes his music as “playing with shapes and colors”. Lőrinc chose to concentrate on the trumpet, going on to make his mark in the world of music. Lőrinc has performed in Hong Kong, Sydney, New York, Paris and Moscow, played at the Montreaux Jazz Festival and at the North Sea Jazz Festival among others. He spent years in London and lived in the US as well.
Barabás Lőrinc in his musical formation and collaborations shows that he sees no borders when it comes to the art of music because music is truly a universal language that cuts across all man-made boundaries, limitations and labels.
Lőrinc is unstoppable in his zeal to present the sounds of his city Budapest and classical trumpet around the globe as he seeks more collaborations and fusions worldwide. Barabás Lőrinc is definitely an artist to watch in 2017 as he continues to shine his star power on the world, one tour at a time.
