“Folk Youth” was founded in year 2016 and it is an interesting new music project by the pianist, composer and founder of the idea - only 23-years old Martin Štefánik, merging elements of folklore, jazz, classical and modern energetic music.

This fusion of seemingly juxtapose components comes out as very interesting in Martin Štefánik’s arrangements. His compositions and their unique style bring an innovative approach into traditional understanding and processing of folklore songs.

Members:
Martin Majlo Štefánik - founder, composer, pianist (studied at Conservatory in Bratislava, Slovakia)
Ján Kružliak jr. - violinist (studied at The Royal Academy of Music, Denmark)
Jakub Kačic - drummer (studied at Berklee College of Music, JAMU Brno)
Jozef Madola - bass, contrabass player
Peter Leto - cymbalo
Daniela Sihelská - vocalist (also a member of SĽUK - Slovak Folk Art Ensemble)
Mária Nagyová - vocalist (she was a member of SĽUK for 11 years)
Monika Horičková - vocalist
Terézia Jarošová - vocalist (during her studies she was a vocalist in the University choir in Amsterdam and Hague).
