Mihály Farkas comes from a family of Gypsy musicians.
He was six when he started playing cimbalom in music school. He learned
the traditions, language, and repertoire of Hungarian Gypsy music from friends
and older musicians by listening and playing with them. After finishing
at the Béla Bartok conservatory, he received his first diploma from
the Talentum International Dance and Music School where he studied classical,
Gypsy, dance, salon, and jazz music. In 2007 Mihály received a diploma
for cimbalom performance and education from the Franz
Liszt Music Academy.
