Delilah delivers timeless vocals reminiscent of legendary jazz artists and sings from her enchanted Gypsy soul spinning tales and delivering the history of the Roma in the modern world with the release of “Sweeter Life.” Heavy-hitting producers on the album include Vikter Duplaix, Marcus Kane, Rane Parish, Lemoyne Alexander, and Dave Sereny. Featured artists include the Stevie Wonder rhythm section of Nathan Watts and Stanley Randolph.
Born in Budapest, Hungary, Delilah had to flee her home country due to racial tension and now lives in Toronto, Canada. Delilah inherited her gift of music from her parents, who immersed her in performing from an early age. By the age of 10, she was singing and dancing with her family in a 20-member touring ensemble with one of Hungary’s noted Roma performers, Bongo Margit, throughout Europe. By the time she was 16, she and her older brother Paul Lakatos, a guitar virtuoso, were performing with violinist Sonny Walker, another Roma legend, who jammed regularly with her father and family at impromptu gatherings in her home.
Delilah has refined her music to a beautiful smooth jazz and pop sound. She will be performing this summer in Philadelphia at Warmdaddy’s on Thursday June 20th. There you’ll get to hear her striking voice in person while she pours her heart and soul into her performance. What a treat! If you’re in the Philly area, you should definitely come and enjoy this Hungarian beauty.
