About Me


play, love, inspire


My favorite thing is MUSIC. I just love it. To do it, to listen to it, to dance to it, to talk about it, to think about it, anything...

I decided to become a musician as it has been my dream since i first heard The Beatles when i was 9.
I have two active bands these days, Lanou, playing love folk, and a mantra band with my name :D (sometimes a group of ten, with 5 singer girls, a violinist, a bassist and two drummers)
And there is my old band, Karuna, a trio playing mantras with soft grooves, inviting all to sing with us. We are guitar-clarinet-percussion with two voices, lot of fun. (this band is on maternaty leave, but still a fun band)
Every full moon we host a mantra and voice workshop, digging deep into ourselves. Wonderful connections...
I used to play in another trio, Matana, with whom we play spiritual chill-out, trying to touch the people, to bring a moment of peace, with violin, guitar, hang and voices.

My first instrument is the guitar, but more and more i explore my voice. What a wonderful journey it is. :)

Walking the spiritual path is the cornerstone of my life, i practice tai chi , chi kung, meditaion. And yes, mantras.
I feel that knowing myself is very important.


Music is good.
Every moment is magic.
Learn from everyone.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I just came back from my first CS trip, and i can tell you, it is one of the great wonders of the world.
The best way to meet people and to see the place they live at.
My advise: travel with CS!

I've been surfing twice in Spain, twice in Amsterdam, once in London, four times in Istambul and they were all special days i keep in my heart.

And in fact, maybe it is not called CouchSurfing, but i had many similar experiences, being hosted by many, in many places. I also ended up hosting a guy who we just met on the street and asked us for directions for a festival...
Life is pure CS...


Music, guitar, concerts, bikes, dancing, sports, nature, hanging out with friends, just lying in the sunshine, daydreaming, different cultures, travelling and experiencing the places, mediation, gardening, percussion, tai chi, chi kung, observing, listening, talking, cajon, hiking, gardening, and, and, and...

Music, Movies, and Books

All kinds of stuff.
John Mayer.
My favorite hungarian band: Mörk.
The Beatles for sure.
Meditation and mantra music like Deva Premal, Mirabai Ceiba, Luis Paniagua, Ben Leinbach... The bansuri.
