“Combining different types of arts is a very famous thing nowadays. In 2011 I started to work out an idea maybe first in the world based on the fusion of drumming and fire juggling. By this I mean the art which performed by fire dancers and other fire artists who use flaming tools like poi, dragon staff, contact staff, fire swords etc…In this video a drum solo can be seen included composed parts and improvisation. In some sections of this I use flaming drumsticks. Each stick has two burning parts…”



Mixing the concept solo album „The Wondrous Stag”. A few thoughts about the album:
“This album contains the songs of “The Wondrous Stag” fire & drum show which we have been performing continuously since 2015 together with my wife who is a dancer, choreographer and educator. The material also contains some other compositions of the same theme and atmosphere. The album versions sound a bit different than the live ones. There is the fire as the show element during a live performance which you cannot see while listening to an album :) . For this reason, every songs’ fiery drum parts were changed to drum solos or similar parts than the fiery ones but played with ordinary drum sticks. Thus, we can call this a concept solo album.
I invited my friend, Marius Pop from Romania, to perform in four of the songs and I’m very glad He accepted. He elevated the musical quality of this record to a higher level with his amazing guitar performance.
The „Wondrous Stag” is an ancient legend of the wanderings of the Hun and Magyar tribes who started a long journey somewhere in Central or South-Central Asia. A mysterious deer led them towards a new home…” O.Z.
