8 year old bass phenom, Music lover, but first of all a child from Slovakia.

When you listen to Áron Hodek play bass, you would never guess it is only a child playing.

For long time, Áron was not allowed to go into his brother's room which was in the loft. He was too young and his parents were afraid he would hurt himself on the stairs.
He was three years old when he first entered the room, a bass guitar immediately capturing his attention.
“I put it down for him,” —Áron's brother Dávid says— “It was big but after I explained the basics of playing, he immediately started playing a simple groove,“ he recalls.

Áron was introduced to Markbass by our top-artist Richard Bona and during a performance at the Markbass booth at NAMM 2019, Richard invited him on MarkWorld stage for a jam, along with DV Mark artist Ciro Manna.
