Telázsi Band – Méra, Kalotaszeg, Transylvania. In mid June 2021, Henics Tamás (photographer, Ladikos music festival founder and director, musician, medical researcher) who lives in Western Hungary/Austria was finally able to go to the Kalotaszeg village of Méra (in Romania) after a year and a half of COVID restrictions. His friends in Méra greeted him with live music played by a newly formed traditional band: Telázsi Band which grew out of members of the local Kalotaszeg Folk Dance Ensemble. Tamás says they are ready to play for any local dance event – be that sheep’s milk measuring events, hiring of shepherds, weddings, christenings, etc. By Henics Tamás.
