AllMusic Review by

Like many relatively isolated out-groups, the Hungarian minority of Romania preserved forms often lost in Hungary itself. This is a rich, varied, admirably recorded collection of music ranging from solo voice to small dance band. The standard of playing is remarkable. What isn't clear is the provenance of the performers, though (given that one of the singers is Marta Sebestyen) it's pretty clear these weren't recordings made in situ.
