Hungarian-born Romani musician Robi Botos immigrated to Canada in 1998. Shortly after arriving, he caught the ear of Canadian jazz great, Oscar Peterson, and quickly became his protégé. To this day, Botos remains a disciple of Dr. Peterson’s mighty sense of swing and technical virtuosity. Along with this influence, he possesses a deep tradition in Romani, Hungarian, and European folk and classical music. The fusion of European influences with North American bebop, hard bop, and modern jazz has formulated a sound and approach that is original and formidable.
