Muzsikás - Blues for Transylvania (Hungary 1990) @320

Their second domestic release, also with Sebestyen, is part celebration and part commemoration of a troubled history. This recording explores the traditional music of the Romanian region of Transylvania (taken from Hungary after World War I). Even the fast and furious songs have a meditative quality. This is another outstanding release from one of Europe's premier folk ensembles.
