Hungary, 2004, Hungarian folk

EgyszólamZöld erdőben táncolnak: Dél-dunántúli magyar népzene hosszifuruglán: One might think that the buzzing vibrato of the long flute would bring about a sense of disquiet, but actually the resonance puts one at ease, setting the aural environment for desperate stories of hardscrabble rustic life, full of murdering shepherds, prisoners, and outlaws. Outcast folk music for an outcast people.
