Felix Lajko is a hungarian violinist, zither player and composer. He plays a blend of musical styles in an own unique way: traditional pannonian string music, Romani music, folk music, classical music, rock, blues, jazz and improvised melodies.
Lajko has also played together with a large number of well-known bands and musicians. He was a member of Gyoergy Szabados's band, Makuz and Boris Kovac's band, Ritual Nova. He performed together with the world-famous Japanese butoh dancer, Min Tanaka and the French Noir Desir band a number of times. He has had many concerts together with the Romanian violin player living in London, Alexander Balanescu and with Boban Markovic's brass gipsy band. He has composed music for some theatrical plays. Among others he wrote the complete music material for the Szabadka Theatre's Public enemy production, but Jozef Nadj from Orlean also asks him to compose music for his performances regularly and he has also composed music for choreographies of Ivett Bozsik. He composed the whole musical score for Wheels, a film by Ljubisa Samardzic from Yugoslavia. It was also him who composed the hymn for the 1998 Sarajevo cultural festival, Sarajevska Zima. He has participated in many fiction films and Miklos Jancso made his short film Play, Felix about him. He wrote music for Towards a New Atlantis, a project of the Venice Biennale in 2000. Lajko also composed music for and acted as the main character of Kornel Mundruczo's film Delta- a film which won a small prize in Cannes, and was nominated for the Golden Palm. It was the Hungarian Film Festival's winning film, and Lajko was awarded the best original soundtrack of the Festival.
