M. Ted (inactive) Hungarian? folk song, I think (7) RE: Hungarian? folk song, I think 06 Oct 00

Nice cheery little ditty, isn't it?

There is a tradition of singing among young women in the certain parts of Hungary, and also into the Tatro Slovak area, the singing generally is done while dancing (tradtitionally, with no other musical accompaniment)--I have heard many recordings, mostly revivalists, and a few of performing groups as well--it is quite beautiful to hear a group of women sing this music, but the original language is difficult for non-native speakers, so not often included in eclectic folk repertoires. They will not be the same in english or esperanto, because Hungarian has a different stress pattern--but the melodies are so wonderful!!
