AllMusic Review by

Groups from several villages (but mostly from Clejani and Mirsa) play some of the standard wedding repertoire. The ensembles, mostly organized round violin, cimbalom dulcimer and often accordion, have the particular and wonderful tightness and flair of well-established groups with deep local roots. Good notes sketch both the music's background and the part it plays in the festivities.
