Roby Lakatos, the “devil’s fiddler”, is a gypsy violinist from Hungary. He is renowned for his mix of classical music with Hungarian-gypsy music and jazz themes.

Lakatos was born in 1965 into the legendary family of gypsy violinists descended from Janos Bihari, “King of Gypsy Violinists”. He was introduced to music as a child and at age nine he made his public debut as first violin in a gypsy band. His musicianship was learnt not only with his own family, but also at the Béla Bartók Conservatory of Budapest, where he won the first prize for classical violin in 1984. Between 1986 and 1996, he and his ensemble played at "Les Ateliers de La Grande Ile" in Brussels. He has collaborated with Vadim Repin and Stéphane Grappelli. It is claimed Lakatos' playing was greatly admired by Sir Yehudi Menuhin, who always made a point of visiting the club in Brussels to hear him. In March 2004, Lakatos appeared to great acclaim with the London Symphony Orchestra in the orchestra’s “Genius of the Violin” festival alongside Maxim Vengerov.

Roby Lakatos, the devils fiddler, is a Romani (Gypsy) violinist from Hungary. He is renowned for his mix of classical music with Hungarian-gypsy music and jazz themes.

Romani 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 his own Hungarian folk idiom, Lakatos is the rare musician who defies definition. He is referred to as a gypsy violinist or devils 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 in the great halls and festivals of Europe, Asia and America.

Born in 1965 into the legendary family of Romani violinists descended from János Bihari, King of Gypsy Violinists, Roby Lakatos was introduced to music as a child and at the age of nine he made his public debut as first violin in a Romani band. His musicianship evolved not only within his own family but also at the Béla Bartók Conservatory of Budapest, where he won the first prize for classical violin in 1984. Between 1986 and 1996, he and his ensemble delighted audiences at Les Atéliers de la Grande Ille in Brussels, their musical home throughout this period. He has collaborated with Vadim Repin and Stéphane Grappelli, and his playing was greatly admired by Sir Yehudi Menuhin, who always made a point of visiting the club in Brussels to hear Lakatos. In March 2004, Lakatos appeared to great acclaim with the London Symphony Orchestra in the orchestras Genius of the Violin festival alongside Maxim Vengerov.

When Roby Lakatos mixes so-called classical music with the magic of Hungarian-gypsy vitality, it is not disrespectful toward the classical tradition, but it reflects the deep tradition rooted in the cultural heritage of the Romani people and offers new, refreshing pleasures to the listener and music lover. And just as Liszt, Brahms and others used Hungarian overtones in their compositions, so now the public profits from the reuniting of these classics with their Romani roots. This enlivens all those men and women in whose veins still pulses at least a little bit of the blood of the wandering spirit.

Roby Lakatos has released four albums for avanticlassic to date: Prokofiev project with Polina Leschenko, Christian Poltéra and Martha Argerich; Fire Dance; Klezmer Karma with the Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra, yiddish singer Myriam Fuks and accordionist Aldo Granato and; Roby Lakatos with Musical Friends with Stéphane Grappelli, Vadim Repin, Randy Brecker, Tony Lakatos, Marc Fosset and the Vieuxtemps Quartet. Roby Lakatos also performed as a guest on Megitza Quartet's album "Boleritza."
