Lecture of Dr. Gergely Agócs on collecting folk music in Upland (Felföld)
This lecture is held in Hungarian. Before the concert of the Fonó band, Eszter Pál and Muzicka, we can accompany Gergely Agócs on his own gathering trips in the highlands. We can also get a taste of the audio material documented since 1985 and of his personal collecting experiences.
On this occasion the House of Music Hungary's traditional Hungarian folk music series entitled Landscapes and their Music focuses on the former Hungarian Highlands, now a part of Slovakia. Gergely Agócs and his ensemble, the Fonó Band, are the hosts of the evening entitled "On Highland Roads", with their guests the singer, Eszter Pál, and the Bratislava-based Muzička Band, pioneers of the Slovakian dance house movement.
