Irén Lovász emerged as a folk singer in the 1980s and went on to make some superb albums together with László Hortobágyi. Between 1998 and 2003, she sang for Makám, all while participating in numerous folk and world music projects and producing her own solo albums. In 2006, she started her record series called Gyógyító hangok (‘Healing Voices'), which consisted of 2006's Égi hang (‘Sacred Voice'), 2007's Belső hang (‘Inner Voice'), 2017's Női hang (‘Female Voice'), and completed by Gyógyító hang (‘Healing Voice'), released in April 2023. She will be playing this material created with Дeva and several other excellent musicians live with her collaborators.

Also known for her work as an ethnographic researcher, the Kossuth Prize-winning artist Irén Lovász first appeared on the 1986 album Táncháztalálkozó (‘Hungarian Dance House Meeting'), on which she sang with Téka, and made her first albums - 1995's Világfa (‘World Tree') and 1996's Rosebuds in a Stoneyard - together with László Hortobágyi. She was then featured on several excellent CDs from Makám (Skanzen, 9 colinda, Szindbád) and collaborated with other artists (such as the Czecho-Slovakian Teagrass, e-jam, and Attila Lőrinszky). In addition to her other solo albums, she launched her large-scale album series Gyógyító hangok, (‘Healing Voice') in 2006, which has reached its fourth and final chapter in 2023. "The closing piece of the four-part album series is the album Gyógyító hang (‘Healing Voice'). This is the summary and essence of everything I think about the healing role and contemporary use of singing folk songs rooted in the national tradition and spoken in the mother tongue,” says Lovász, whose main co-creator this time around was the talented young producer/singer Дeva. Joining the two of them on the stage at the record release concert will be the outstanding musicians who contributed to it: Miklós Lukács, Kornél Horváth, Zoltán Lantos, Béla Ágoston, Zoltán Mizsei, and Ágnes Pintér. We can look forward to an evening of healing with this rich list of names.
