Marta Sebastien, Hungary


Most people discovered Marta Sebastien's voice through the Oscar-winning film "The English Patient". Marta, for many years, was Hungary's best kept secret: the performer, the researcher, the vehicle of the rich traditional Hungarian music, spread in Hungarian communities around the world. For the music enthusiasts, Marta is cherished for two reasons: her particular way of expressing Hungaria's musical treasures and her impressive technique, hidden behind her child-like face. World Music travels to Budapest, for the Spring Festival 2007, in order to discover more about Marta.
