Djabe is one of the finest Progressive / Jazz fusion bands working in the world today. They are also known to a wider audience outside of their native land thanks to a series of collaborative albums and live appearances with the legendary solo musician and ex-Genesis member STEVE HACKETT.

DJABE features Tamas Barabas (bass guitar), Attila Egerhazi (acoustic and electric guitar, percussion), Áron Koós-Hutás (flugelhorn, trumpet), János Nagy (keyboards) and Péter Kaszás (drums, lead vocal) and their music contains influences from progressive rock, jazz and world music. Their new album is inspired by the work of the painter, Imre Égerházi (father of Attila Égerházi).

By the new millennium Imre Égerházi was regarded as one of the Alföld’s leading masters. He had gained great recognition in Hungary and beyond its borders for his art and his organizational work in the world of art. He also did much for artistic communities and colleagues. His work and life inspired the musicians to create “THE MAGIC STAG”.

STEVE HACKETT not only co-wrote the lyrics of the album’s title track with his wife JO HACKETT, but he also plays guitar on seven of the album tracks and acts as narrator. The album also features guest ROB TOWNSEND on tenor saxophone (also from Steve Hackett’s band). Tar genius Malik Mansurov also plays on several tracks, whilst former Djabe members, Ferenc Muck and Tibor Karvaly also contribute. László Szabó also adds his magical Sitar playing to the album.

This 2LP edition contains all the 11 album tracks from the CD PLUS two bonuses on the Side 4.

Sari’s Dream is an extra studio track featuring an extended guitar solo by Steve and Gallop is a live track from 2019 also featuring Steve.
