Maneszes Márton K. Tóth László interviews this Hungarian Transylvanian fiddler from the Mezőség village of Magyarszovát. Mr. Maneszes telis about listening to his mother sing, when he was a child, how her singing has influenced his music and how they differ from the gypsy music of the area. He describes learning to play by listening and watching, not by someone showing him what to do. He tells about some of the diffi culties that music has caused in his life at the hands of the previous government. Nevertheless he still says, „I have 5 or 6 professions and I like all of them, but I don't love anything like I love music".
