Attila Fias is an award-winning, Hungarian born jazz pianist, composer and arranger based in Toronto. He is a versatile musician, whose playing has been called pyrotechnic, stunning, playful and sophisticated by the Toronto Star, Wholenote magazine and Exclaim magazine. His special blend of sounds from across the globe reflects his rich and varied musical background with influences from Hungary, Brazil, Cuba and India.

Attila’s experience includes performing and recording with notable international musicians such as Oscar-winning Indian superstar A.R. Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire), world-renowned tabla master Zakir Hussain, and New York harmonica virtuoso Hendrik Meurkens, in venues such as Madison Square Garden, Sydney Superdome and Wembley Stadium. The Attila Fias Quartet was the main performers at the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards Governor’s Ball in Los Angeles.

With over 100 different internationally distributed albums to his credit, Attila has several gold and platinum records, and has recorded three albums of his original material. His latest album called “Ride” will be released in October 2016. He will be joined by virtuoso bassist Scott Kemp and multifaceted drummer Richard Brisco.

Budapest in Montreal

Hungarian Cultural Week
Are you ready to discover Hungary in Montreal?
There are already many links between Quebec and Hungary: Montreal received Hungarian immigrants and refugees at different times, Montreal was the centre where Hungarians fleeing communism arrived in 1956.
This year represents a great opportunity to revive and strengthen relations. The 60th anniversary of the Revolution of 1956 provides us an opportunity to look back and pay homage to the individual achievements of Hungarian Canadians who contributed to a great extent to the success and prosperity of Canada that we see today.
There will be several concerts and exhibitions, a movie festival in two cinemas during the week. There will also be opportunities to learn about Hungarian gastronomy and handcrafts. Local Hungarian artists will also showcase their talent.
The events of the Hungarian Cultural Week are sponsored by the 1956 Hungarian Revolution and Freedom Fight 60th Anniversary Memorial Board.  www.budapestinmontreal.ca
