In many corners of the world, the name and of course, first of all the voice of Andrea Gerák (say: GHE-raakh, also spelled as Gerak) equals Hungarian folk song. Through Irish, Turkish, Bulgarian and other traditional songs, she takes the listener to other lands as well, even to such exotic places as the Solomon Islands, with traditional, acapella or world fusion interpretations. Besides ethnic tunes, her unmistakable voice can be used very well in other genres too, for example ambient, contemporary projects or soundtracks; jazz standards, musicals and pop songs are also part of her repertoire.
Andrea Gerák had her first stage performance at the age of 5, in her home town Kazincbarcika, Northern Hungary. From a few years later on, she has been dancing and singing in several folklore groups in, in the Borsod, Avas, Csepel and Bartók dance ensembles where she was often the soloist. As a dancer, she appears in the Golden Bear awarded movie Music Box by Constantinos Costa-Gavras, seen even in the trailer.
In 2008, the artist had to undergo a cancer surgery but was back on the stage after six weeks.
After years of being first of all a mom and a wife, and searching for her path, wandering about in several countries, Andrea Gerák continued her career on a new level from the recent years. She performed in most of Europe at festivals, clubs, exhibition openings, churches, private, corporate and community events, benefits.
More than a singer and dancer: Andrea sometimes does acting or model jobs as well.
Today Andrea lives in Budapest, Hungary, performing solo, with the World Fusion duo Fililibi Projekt, a new band Egy kis konyhazene ("A Little Kitchen Music") or with excellent traditional folk musicians.
