Christian Amin grew up with music and learned to play the Art of Afro-Cuban music from early age by his father André Várkonyi who was a Master Percussionist. Now he plays a range of Instruments, composes original music inspired by large travels into cultures from all over the planet. Uniting them into his own unique style of music which can´t be labelled as a Single Genre. His path as an Artist through which he performed on stages all over the world was certainly accompanied by a dedicated research of the benefit of sound and music on the enviroment and human nature. After the death of his father, along with his two brothers, Christian Amin founded the Association Music for the Sun. Their members use Music as a tool for communication, first to our selves, getting in touch with our inner landscapes and feelings and then we explore a deep Musical expression of feelings and awareness of time and space in a respectful contact with each other. Both, as a listener in his concerts or attendee of a his workshop those ethic principles are felt indeed deeply.

  

“Music arises from stillness, weaves a translation of spirit and again dissolves into Stillness.” Amín
