Dorina Takács, named Deva, was selected as one of Europe’s best emerging artists at the Eurosonic Festival in Groningen.
21-year-old Дeva broke into the Hungarian music scene just a year ago with a special sound that combines modern electronic music and folk. After several songs, the first album was released on January 20 under the auspices of Balázs Zságer, the new label, and the album will be presented in Trafó at the end of the month.

The Music Moves Europe Prize is the European Union’s award for contemporary pop music, designed to showcase and support emerging European artists in launching and developing their international careers. In previous years, she has rewarded performers such as Stromae, Adele, Mumford and Sons, Dua Lipa and Rosalía. This year’s winners were chosen by an expert jury: Gemma Bradley (BBC Radio 1), Cindy Castillo (Mad Cool Festival), Kevin Cole (KEXP), Brian Johnson (Spotify) and Honorary Jury Member, Audience Award Winner Alyona Alyona last year.
Fifteen distinguished artists were nominated for this year’s award. Five of them won the Music Moves Europe Prize (Denise Chaila – Ireland, ДEVA – Hungary, Mezerg – France, Blanks – Holland, Alina Pash – Ukraine), the Grand Jury Prize went to the Belgian Meskerem Mees and the audience prize went to the Armenian Ladaneva.
