A proponent of the “Olah Gypsy” singing style, Lakatos is the first Romani artist and the second Hungarian artist or group after the Muzsikás Ensemble to receive this honour.
“This life achievement award honours me not only as a Roma but as a Hungarian, since we have a twofold identity”, she said.
“It was with happiness and pride that I learnt that you as the first Hungarian soloist and the first Romani performing artist, won the Worldwide Music Expo life achievement award”, Orbán said.
The award was announced during an online ceremony on October 26.
