Live performace by Amoeba Band featuring Uránia Film Theatre, Budapest. Call Me Unique at TEDxDanubia 2016 in

Amoeba was founded in Budapest in 2010, with the slogan “Music Changes Shape, But Never Loses the Funk.” The band is often found jamming in the city's vibrant music scene, merging funk, future soul, improvisatory jazz, hip‐hop and broken beat instrumentally, often appearing on Slam Poetry stages as well. They are lead by one of the most favoured musicians in the Budapest club scene, bass player and singer Peter Sabák, also known as soloist Dizko Stu, sometimes referred to by his fellow musicians as ‘the String Tsar’, who also appears in various other formations, including Másfél and Akkezdet Phiai. Other band members are the guitarist Viktor Sági, also called VANIS, drummer Levente Boros, also known as Lev Toystore, and keyboardist Szabolcs Bognár, who all team up to play in Fixi4 as well.
