New Fossils

The New Fossils have opted for a constant search for new paths and the tensions inherent in contradictions. Their music is permeated with a sense of longing, while the end result is clearly linked to the latest strand of contemporary urban jazz. Song-centric compositions are taken to a higher level, sometimes with electronics, sometimes with improvisation. They do this with real ease, as they have been prominent figures in the Hungarian jazz and popular music scene as members of the Dresch Quartet or Mörk even before the band started. Their debut album was recorded in 2022 and will be released in April this year on their own label, Morotva Records.


Transylvanian-born András Koroknay is currently one of the country’s most innovative music producers. As a bass guitarist, he may be known from several bands (Àbáse, Manaky, Papaver, Európa Kiadó), but for some time now his solo project SunMa has been his focus. A self-described nomadic sound artist, he currently divides his time between Budapest, Berlin and India, and his releases, which have been growing since 2020, build a meditative musical world rooted in Dub, intersecting it with a wide variety of other styles and sounds. This colourful spectrum is brought to the stage live in trio formations (with drummer Ádám Klausz and keyboardist András Kálmán) and as a solo live set, always tailored to the occasion, with lots of improvisation. Since his debut in Berlin in 2022 (Badehaus), he has performed at such prominent Hungarian venues as the Hungarian House of Music, the A38, and most recently the Budapest Showcase Hub. He is currently working on his most complex material to date, recorded at one of Berlin’s leading studios, Brewery, in addition to a steady stream of new releases such as the “Fourth Moment” mixtape.

Gyárfás Attila

Attila Gyárfás, drummer and composer, is interested in exploring the free improvisation-based playing style and the sounds that result from the unusual sounding of drum equipment. He is a jazz drum teacher at the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music and his playing can be heard on more than 20 recordings. He is currently playing in several formations, typically international bands such as Identified Flying Object and Filippo Vignato Trio, but he is also a member of the Budapest Modern Jazz Collective and the Ávéd János Trio. He has given numerous solo concerts throughout his career, including in New York, Milan and Vicenza. As a bandleader, he has recorded two albums (Cloud Factory in 2018 and Randomity in 2020), his most recent release being Minimal Distance, released on Hunnia Records.
