Ethnomusicologist Vargyas Lajos, dance researcher Pesovár Ernő and ethnographer Andrásfalvy Bertalan recall some early expeditions collecting folk music and dance and working together in the 1950’s and 60’s. These are excerpts from the portrait film on Vargyas entitled ’Kerítésen kívül’ from 2000. Both Vargyas and Pesovár have died in the last year thus leaving large gaps in the research community in Hungary. These selections were transcribed by Szőkéné Károlyi Annamária and edited by a group from the Institute of Musicology.
