About Alexandra Berta
Alexandra Berta - vocals, citera
After starting her music education at the age of 10 in the local School of Arts in Paks, Alexandra Berta began developing her own style - her own voice - by reaching out to as many sources of knowledge as possible. During this period she attended a number of folk music competitions, winning some of the highest prizes of folk music performance in Hungary. She recorded her first album, Ifijusag Gyongykoszoru (Youth, pearl wreath), in 2006. Berta graduated from the Liszt Ferenc Music Academy with a Bachelor in Folk Arts in 2010, a Master in Stringed Instruments in 2012, as well as a Folk Singing and Music Teacher diploma in 2013. Since 2012 she's been a zither teacher at the Hungarian Music Academy and has classes at the Csutorás International Folk Music and Dance Summer Camp (also in Hungary). She's dedicated to spreading the joy of listening to and playing the zither, educating the younger and the older generations, the beginners and the experienced alike. As a member of the Folk Music Commission of the Association of Hungarian Choirs, Orchestras and Folk Ensembles, since 2013 she's actively partaking in the organization of leading folk music events and competitions. Since 2013 she's been a lecturer at the Hungarian Heritage House, allowing her to gain an even deeper relationship with the Hungarian folk culture and music.
In 2013, for her achievements in folk music, she was awarded the Junior Prime Award, a privately founded prize in Hungary which is highest in its kind honouring young talents under 30 in science, culture, education and media. This provided her with the motivation and ambition to record her second album, Lélektől lélekig (Soul to Soul). In the same year she was awarded in her hometown, Paks, the Paks Culture Award.
Alexandra performs in Hungary and abroad with her band Pengetős Trió: www.pengetostrio.hu
