Bandi Kocsis (violin)

         Bandi has been a nearly life-long member of the Bokreta Hungarian Dance Ensemble of Montreal, where he spent years as a soloist and choreographer, performing widely throughout North America.

         He later picked up the violin and has since studied with some of the finest music teachers from Hungary and Transylvania.

         With his approach to Hungarian folk music through his dance background, Bandi provides a keen understanding of the dancer-oriented village music, and often enlivens Gyanta performances with dancing of his own.
