Akosh Szelevenyi was born in 1966 in Debrecen in Hungary. While studying the classical music in Budapest, he discovers jazz, Jimmie Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and Frank Zappa. In 1985, some troubles with the administration and the police force him to leave Hungary. In 1986 he crosses the Iron Curtain and arrives in Paris.
At the margin of the traditional French jazz environment, Akosh plays in the bars, where he meets several musicians. One of them is the band “Noir Desir,” and their invitation to take part in their tour subsequently launches his career in the main music circuit. In 2006, he composes the music for the contemporary dance performance by Josef Nadj, and their collaboration piece was presented at the theatrical festival of Avignon.
Akosh’s musical inspiration comes from Archie Shepp, Albert Ayler, Jonh Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders, Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry, Sun Ra, Charcie Haden and many other musicians and jazz lovers.
