Thris Tian hosts Global Roots Radio, a weekly dose of experimental, underground music from across all corners of the globe; with independent music and culture at the core.
Thris is joined by Àbáse for an incredible live session and a chat.
Àbáse (Szabolcs Bognar) has been an active part of the versatile Hungarian music jazz and hip-hop scene for a number of years. As a member of several successful Hungarian acts, including Amoeba, Soulclap Budapest and the latest project – The Mabon Dawud Republic – a fourteen piece Afrobeat orchestra guest-starring Dele Sosimi, he has honed his skills as a keyboard player and musical director, proving to be a world class musician.
In Summer 2018, Àbáse went on tour supporting the mighty Melbourne neosoul/jazz/bebop collective 30/70 for the Budapest, Prague and Berlin shows of their European tour.
Currently his guest performers for his live shows are Nigerian trumpet virtuoso Etuk Ubong, Ghanaian kologo player and vocalist Stevo Atambire and Wayne Snow.
The debut EP will be released in early summer 2019 via HHV and Cosmic Compositions.
