Ditta Demeter

I was born in 1998 in Debrecen, Hungary but moved to the UK to read French and Russian at the University of Cambridge in 2016. I’m currently spending a year abroad in Paris, honing my language skills while simultaneously stuffing my face with copious amounts of French cheese and pastries (and washing it all down with more glasses of Bordeaux than I’m comfortable admitting). Music has played a very important part role in my life since I was little: my earliest memories are all sonic or rhythmic, from singing along to the Rugrats theme song to listening to my dad’s old vinyls. He introduced me to several great classics – I was lucky enough to grow up with Dire Straits, Pink Floyd, Queen and Guns ‘n Roses playing endlessly in the background. These childhood influences might explain why I still have an exceptionally strong emotional bond with music. Genres are irrelevant; for me, the best tracks are the ones that I can connect to on more than just a conscious-intellectual level – the ones that, in some beautifully inexplicable way, reach all the way to my heart.
