Hungarian folk evening

Leave a Comment

Tonight we spent the evening at Tuba Tanya, enjoying the fantastic local specialities of course, but also the Hungarian folk music and other folky activities.  The band (Tuba R√≥zsa) were fantastic: listen to that bass sound – it’s someone rubbing a wet cloth up & down a stick attached to a skin stretched over a jug.

After that we all went outside to play with the enormous whips the herdsmen traditionally use out here.  Anna was very good at it …
