Ágnes Enyedi spent most of her childhood in the Transylvanian village of Bonchida. She is a well-known singer in the Hungarian “dance-house movement”: a member of multiple ensembles (including Magos and Tázló bands), guest singer of the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble and Duna Art Ensemble, teacher at Hermann László Conservatory of Székesfehérvár, and participant in various music projects and albums. She frequently travels to Transylvania to collect folk music and folk songs from peasant masters. She has been awarded the Young Master of Folk Arts and Junior Prima awards, and selected into the 50 Talented Young Hungarians program. She toured the US with Magos in 2012, with the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble in 2013, and this year is touring with the Enyedi-Salamon Quartet.
