Teodor Pop is the leader of “loud-jazz” trio JazzyBIT, from Timisoara, Romania. Teodor fell in love with the piano at the early age of 4, and studied classical music until 14, when he joined the jazz classes of “Francisc Hubic” Popular Art School from Oradea. In 2004 he won the “Best Pianist Award” at the “Iuliu Merca” memorial music competition in Cluj Napoca, Romania.
Together with bass player Mihai Moldoveanu and drummer Szabó Csongor-Zsolt, he continues to discover and develop energetic fusions of jazz, rock, blues, latin and funk. At this year’s edition, we’ll get to admire his talent on both the Main Stage, in a special collaboration between JazzyBIT and Omar Sosa, and on the Piano Stage, with a solo concert full of surprises.
