Hungarian folk dance researcher, Maácz László (1929–1998) writes about his first experiences doing field work collecting traditional dance in rural Hungary in the early 1950s, when poverty ruled the lives of people in a countryside still reeling from WWII and adjusting to life under the regime of the period. First published in 1982, this is an excerpt from “Maácz” (Ed: Fügedi János, Szélpál-Bajtai Éva. L’Harmattan, Institute of Musicology, Budapest. 2015. pp 87–90).
