Vujicsics: Keeps Serbian Music Alive in Hungary
Erika Borsos | Gulf Coast of FL, USA | 03/05/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Vujicsics is indeed 100% Hungarian & they *do* play Serbian music! In fact, they have been playing this style of music since the mid-1970s, often with Marta Sebestyen as their female vocalist. It is a well known fact that Hungary lost 2/3 of its territory after World War I: some of which went to Serbia (far south & southwest). Serbian minorities have maintainted their ethnic & cultural traditions in many areas of Hungary without discrimination (surprise!! - unlike the Balkans).

Szentendre is a town near Budapest which holds a yearly music festival at which Vujicsics performs live. (By the way, there are several Orthodox churches in Szentendre.) This CD by Vujicsics is an excellent representation of their music: it is lively and authentic played on traditional Serbian instruments but it is one of their earlier recordings. A more recent CD is recommended, I don't recall its title but the first track is "Gajde Oro" and there is another excellent track that lasts over 7 minutes which is distinctly Macedonian with an improvisational clarinet solo that is out of this world! Find *that* one and buy it!!! Get this one, too (but the other is better) ... Erika Borsos (erikab93)"

"This CD is Croatian and Serbian music played by a wonderful Hungarian band that did an excelent job researching the music that they play on this CD. The music sounds just as it might if it was played in a Serbian or Croatian village back in the "good-ol-days." This is the kind of music that sits right at the center of your soul. I say again, beautiful!"
