colorStar is a Budapest-based psychedelic dance band named after the first colour TV set manufactured in Hungary, the name bearing several meanings: referring to the band’s colorful music, and to the movies people see inside while listening to the free flowing music.

colorStar was one of the first bands to amalgamate the various directions of electronic party music with psychedelic, guitar-based pop-rock. The band has become one of the significant formations of Hungarian pop music, and has gained international recognition. While playing at all the important festivals and clubs in Hungary, the band has crossed the border numerous times touring Western Europe, the Benelux states, the Balkan states, and as part of the Fête de la Musique (World Music Day), they played in Istanbul as well.

Fan messages and letters find them from the US, the UK and from all over Europe, moreover, they have been contacted from far-off places like Nepal, Peru, Pakistan or Siberia.

colorStar released a DVD, deLuxe, of their 10th anniversary concert, that has been broadcast several times by the Hungarian National TV as well.

In 2009, they were invited by Hungary’s top alternative radio station, MR2, to record a studio concert for the ’Acoustic’ series, and the band gave successful concerts around the country’s clubs and festivals with this world music-inspired set. Later this year they played in the prestigious Palace of Arts in Budapest with this set.

Fans voted in two of their songs to the same radio station's ’Top 100 of the last ten years’, and one of these songs (Roam the land) was on the radio station’s compilation CD of Hungarian bands.

The band released their latest album, Solarize, at the end of 2014 with which they have been touring Hungary.
