Mihaly Dresch was born in Budapest on 10 July 1955. Although in the beginning he was also fascinated by black American jazz, his verbal and musical mother-language is undeniably Central European and, within that, characteristically Hungarian. "Dresch is one of the most influential nurturers of a fertile fusion between Hungarian folk music and jazz" as John Fordham (The Guardian) puts it.
