Hungary has some of the best roots music in Europe with a musical impact far in excess of its size. From the glorious vocals of Márta Sebestyén to the wild fiddlers of Transylvania, and from the music of the Gypsy orchestras that captivated Brahms and Liszt to the Romany rap of today, The Rough Guide To Hungarian Music is an excellent introduction to the vibrant and diverse music of the region. Harking back to defining moments in the past and spotlighting new talent, this album is a guide to the finest sounds of Hungary today.
