  Hungarian dances
by draguza

Hungary has won high renown in world musical history. Though the country's history has repeatedly prevented uninterrupted development, talented Hungarian musicians in classical music and jazz alike are world famous in our days as well. The history of Hungarian music stared with folk music and it was through adaptations of folk music in compositions of Béla Bartók that it joined the vanguard of international music in the last century.
