Mother of two and of Jazzation, Katus completed studies in folk music, and had her degree in Hungarian language and literature and drama based pedagogy. The middle of seven offspring almost all of her siblings and cousins are noted Hungarian musicians. Her childhood role model was her aunt Judit Andrejszki, a singer, and Julie Andrews, and at the age of four she could watch The Sound of Music several times a day. She sang in a choir, and in a world music formation. She conceived the idea of founding Jazzation at the age of just nineteen, and her dream has come true assuming the form of Hungary’s number one jazz a cappella band.
