Robi Botos — Cocktail Hour

  • Kitchen Sync 370 Donald Street Winnipeg, MB, R3B 2H8 Canada (map)

While Robi Botos is known for being a strong player in the traditional jazz and funk fields, he always incorporates an element of the music he grew up listening to into his playing. Born in Hungary, Robi, a trained pianist, moved to Canada at age 20. He released his sophomore album, Movin’ Forward, in 2015, which won the 2016 Juno for Solo Jazz Album of the Year.

His latest album, 2018’s Old Soul, sees Robi not only venturing into a number of different genres (jazz, funk, soul, and gospel), but he also plays a number of different instruments, including the Harpejji. Old Soul pays tribute to his homeland as he takes you down memory lane with visions of his childhood neighbourhood and through some of his favourite spots in his hometown.
