Szia! 

That's Hello in Hungarian, my native language (say: see-yah). I am from a small town, from this small country of Hungary in the middle of Europe. Traveling the world, living here and there, out of a suitcase.

What is this Patreon thing and how does it work?

I publish content here on this page, and with a monthly recurring contribution of your chosen amount, you will have exclusive access to my songs, photos, videos, poems, short and travel stories or other writings. 

You can also get gifts and experiences - how about a private concert, for example? 

Imagine an ongoing crowd funding campaign: instead of a one-time donation that you would give me far in advance before I deliver the rewards to you, here you can portion your support in monthly bits, as long as you feel like it. 

Who am I and what do I do? 

Most people know me as a singer; my specialty is folk songs - first of all, Hungarian ones, of course. Performed acapella, accompanied by traditional folk musicians, or with a little twist: composers get inspired to make arrangements to the tunes I am singing.  

Another love of mine is photography: travel, urban, nature. 

Beside performing on stages and for various events what I do, I started a project that combines music, travel and photography:  Travel With a Song.
I am showing you beautiful places in the world and record music videos at spots with great acoustics.

Singing a Czech Christmas carol in the fairy tale medieval city of Český Krumlov, in snowfall...:


In a similar style, imagine a Bulgarian folk song up in the Rodope Mountains, an Irish ballad somewhere in the greens of Ireland, a Fado in an old town in Portugal... 

Later, as my means allow, I can get professionals to help me to create these videos, like the one you see in the introduction video above. 

And I have songs, photos and photos! 





I also let you in to how these recordings were made, tell you the full story that I don't share publicly.
Sometimes I also write poems, short stories. 

If this is something you would like to have more of, I am the happiest to give it to you!

Some of my content will remain free for all, but others will be available for the different patronage levels only.

It is not just that you make it easier for me to cover the costs of a creative, artistic work (and I won't need to spend my energy, time and talent performing in the street which I indeed do), - but you will also make it possible that I can share some of my works with the world to enjoy. 

In certain cases, you will also have the opportunity to actively engage in the process: suggest songs or locations, or participate in making a video or book in other ways.

You become a true, 21st Century Maecenas of the Arts! Great karma, the World will be grateful to you.

Alternatively, you can also choose to give a one-time PayPal donation

Thank you for flying with me, 

-- Andrea

If you are visiting the town where I am (in the end of 2017, my base is the absolutely gorgeous Cesky Krumlov, Czechia, but it can be in Prague, Brno, Karlovy Vary, Vienna, Salzburg, Budapest or somewhere else in Hungary...), I will be your personal guide for a half day: I show you not only the tourist attractions but spots that only locals know, We have nice food and we can talk about all kind of things. 


In the evening, I take you out to check what is happening in my favorite live music scenes in town.   

Of course, you will also have a chance to hear me singing: either at one of those beautiful spots in the city - or maybe on stage.

How awesome would it be to meet!!
