Roby Lakatos is a violinist from Hungary who combines jazz, classical, and Hungarian Romani music.

Lakatos was born in 1965 into a family of Romani violinists descended from János Bihari, a composer who influenced Brahms and Liszt. He was introduced to music as a child. When he was nine years old, he made his public debut as first violinist in a Romani band. In 1984 he won first prize for classical violin at the Béla Bartók Conservatory of Budapest.

For the next ten years, he led the house band at a Brussels restaurant where he was complimented by Yehudi Menuhin for his performance of a piece by Liszt. In March 2004, he appeared with the London Symphony Orchestra in the orchestra's Genius of the Violin festival with Maxim Vengerov.

Gypsy violinist Roby Lakatos is not only a scorching virtuoso, but a musician of extraordinary stylistic versatility. Equally comfortable performing classical music as he is playing jazz and in his own Hungarian folk idiom, Lakatos is the rare musician who defies definition. He is referred to as a gypsy violinist or “devil’s fiddler”, a classical virtuoso, a jazz improviser, a composer and arranger, and a 19th-century throwback, and he is actually all of these things at once. He is the kind of universal musician so rarely encountered in our time—a player whose strength as an interpreter derives from his activities as an improviser and composer. He has performed at the great halls and festivals of Europe, Asia and America.

Roby is not just an extraordinary virtuoso but a magician with a unique technique and his own style upsets more than one. It’s a rare musician who can play Classical music, Jazz and naturally his own Hungarian folk idiom with as much energy and technical qualities, he redefines every genre with his violin. He has performed at the great halls and festivals in Europe, Asia and America and played with de biggest jazz men like Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones, Stéphane Grappelli… (Roby-lakatos.com)
