Tradition vs. being up with the limes in the Folkdance Movement Dr. Ratkó Lujza presents arguments on whether Hungary's folkdance and táncház movements are really helping to preserve tradition as they extract dance and music from the whole system of traditions, customs and culture which surround them in their natural habital. She also urges researchers to take a a closer look at the function and surroundings out of which dance comes in addition to doing analyses on the elements and types of music and dance.

He grew up in the time before TV and tape machines. Though he passed away in the 80's, his music, thanks to modern technology, lives on in recordings.

The Téka Ensemble and Szántó János (Szántó Ferenc's brother) also play on this recording: thus presenting authentic village musicians accompanied by a revival band from Budapest. This is an example of a situation both common and sought after within the táncház movement, wherein folk musicians from the city search for "informants" who can supply authentic material for their music and then end up playing together with them. K. Tóth László

Easter Customs of Andrásfalva Andrásfalva is in the area of northeastern Transylvania called Bukovina.

Part II of Kiss Ferenc's summary of the state of the dance house movement and folk music in Hungary. This report co-vers the situation and questions in the areas of folk music recordings, their distribution, pulication and connection with other areas of the arts, representation in the media and the issue of folk music arrangements. Kiss urges for more communication, co-operation between organizations, institutions, schools and companies dealing with Hungarian folk music and the táncház movement. He also cites areas of folk music which he feels need work (syste-mizing gypsy music, solving special problems in transcription of Hungarian folk music, etc) and the need for clarification of popu-lar terminlogy in the Hungarian language (authentic, village, world, revival, peasant music, etc, etc.).

Who was Rábai Miklós? An account of Rábai's life and work until the end of the forties. This is the man who became the first director of the Hungarian State Ensemble and held that postiton until his death in the early seventies. Rábai was a man whose endless energy and curiosity for folklore, music and dance led him into the villages in eastern Hungary during this period to learn the dances of the people there. He was able to gather young people together and inspire them through his enthusiasm and guidance. This period in the late forties is when he began choreographing and formed a dance group within the framework of the Hungarian Scouts before he moving to Budapest. Since the táncház movement began, his work has been considered rather dated and out of style. Just as today's choreography reflects current trends in folklore, Rábai's work reflected the trends in folklore of his time. By Vadasi Tibor
