Beta Palya, new international voice and rising Hungarian star projects a blend of Hungarian folk, jazz, gypsy, Indian, and Persian music. In her unique style she stirs modern and traditional yearnings and bridges time with music. As a soloist, her evasive style and diversity of vocal traditions places her as a true presence not to be ingnored.
