Airtist is a unique music project that creates the atmosphere of
electronic dance music with ancient instruments and human voice. The
Didgeridoo, the Jew's harp and the human beatbox together create an
unmatchable soundworld that is so typical to Airtist. The band don't use
any electronically produced sound. Only the natural vibration of their
instruments is what makes people dance. This music could have been
played thousands of years ago the same way. The band has toured all over Europe and the Middle-East, playing at the greatest festivals and small, energetic club venues, too.

"These three guys just went up on the stage with nothing that seemed
to be an instrument. One of them had a big wooden stick -a didjeridooin
his hand, the other held a little piece of iron between his teeth -
probably a Jew's harp- and the third guy had nothing but his voice. But
after the first seconds of their concert the audience experienced the
most energyful, dancable, ancient party music ever. The whole crowd
started dancing within a minute. The incredible sounds produced without
any electronic equipment blew our mind and moved our body for the
entire concert and after..." - Komlós István

Airtist is a result of fortunate encounters of three musicians. In a
magical moment at the Israeli Didgeridoo Festival Markus Meurer
didgeridoo player and Áron Szilágyi Jew’s harpist performed together
with the beatboxer Inon in 2006. All of a sudden an emotional and
acoustic storm dragged more than a thousand people to dance. This had
to be carried on, so Markus and Áron kept their eyes and ears open to
find a great beatboxer in Europe to join them. A few months later Áron
met the perfect third, Döme the virtuoso beatbox champion who was
eager to join the guys and make Airtist complete.

Áron Szilágyi: Jew's harps
Markus Meurer: Didgeridoo
Döme: Human beatbox

"Our aim is to make the most elementary dance music with the most
ancient instruments using the oldest element: air. We make music that
sounds electronic, although it could have been played the same way
thousands of years ago, too. No samples, no computers, no loops, only
human voice, didgeridoo, Jew’s harp and air."
