National Association of Hungarian Gypsy Musicians. A brief report on associations established in Hungary between 1901 and 1940 for the protection of rights and musical interests of Hungarian Gypsy musicians and for their representation with the authorities. These organizations also published newspapers for shorter and longer periods. There is mention of a 1938 collective agreement signed between the Association and the Hungarian Association Artist’s Representation. The agreement aimed to improve the economic situation of Gypsy musicians. The Association eventually fell apart due to disagreements between the Association (which was led by the lead violinists) and the other band members. By Hajnáczky Tamás.
