tHUNder Duo is a unique experience that combines diverse worlds of influence and directions of rhythmic pursuit, with Kornel and Gabor reinventing traditional styles from around the world as they seek out exciting new rhythms and grooves.

This sensational duo is all about music with meaning. Yes, it rages, it roars, and it pulses as it pulls you into a very different world, but tHUNder Duo matters most because Kornel and Gabor are devoted to excellence as well as excitement. They know the music and its meaning. Exciting. Daring. Human.
