Comments on the new recording presenting Szántó Ferenc, fiddler and flute player from the Transylvanian village of Magyarbece. This is the first recording in a new series called, „A Mestereink” (our masters) and has been released through the combined efforts of Fonó Records and Harmónia Bt. 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.
