He is a crossover artist in the truest form, performing folk songs back to back with pop favorites and classical masterpieces, all with a distinctive, fiery passion. He is not only a skillful entertainer but also a memory keeper and a musical archivist who blends the sounds of new cultures with old.

While known on stage for his virtuosity, Zoltán Mága’s career is driven by his desire to give back with the same energy, as well as to champion the music and culture of Hungary to both Hungarians and the international community. Zoltán Mága has an artistic mission to represent Hungarian cultural traditions around the world, and to strengthen the positive image of his native country. On January 1, 2009, he established the Budapest New Year’s Concert and he annually performs for a live audience of more than 12,000 people at László Papp Budapest Sports Arena in a grandiose, televised event broadcast throughout Hungary and internationally.

Following the successful PBS broadcast of his concert, “Zoltán Mága: From Budapest with Love,” the 10th Budapest New Year’s Concert was presented on American public television in 2018. A second PBS special with 16-time GRAMMY Award-winning writer/producer David Foster was recently recorded live in Budapest featuring special guests Sheléa, Katharine McPhee, Aida and Fernando Varela.

For his work on behalf of Hungary, Zoltán Mága has been awarded the title of Honorary Citizen of Budapest, Knight’s Cross Order of Merit of the Republic of Hungary and a Prima Primissima award.
