The music and records of cymbalom duo Balogh Kálmán and Lukács Miklós have made world music charts top lists and the duo was selected to perform during the recent 2015 WOMEX festival in Budapest. The introductory/congratulatory speech for the two musicians printed here includes a bit of history on the Hungarian pedaled concert cymbalom – the first of which was built in 1874 in Schunda Vencel József ’s instrument factory in Budapest. By Liber Endre.
