"We released Rege in both Hungary and Slovakia in 1998. I think that every reader would have to listen to it because it is difficult to characterise, so every reader should judge for themselves... ...Bernadett's appearance on the album, who is from the south of Hungary, because we had seen her win a competition for folk music vocalists on TV. Since then, she has appeared on our last two albums. In my opinion she has a very interesting voice, which is exactly what we need... I like the voice of Márta Sebestyén very much. Bernadett's voice is different, but for me, as good as Marta's. We instantly felt that Tánc a hóban [Dance in the Snow - on which Bernadett appears] would be the "hit" off Rege. We are very glad that this slow romantic song did become very popular."

Andor Buják

"This world music album from the Ghymes Group will most probably raise the number of their already large group of fans. The black cover hides a colorful musical material that adjusts the Central-European folk traditions to the musical tendencies of the world. The “Dance in the snow” by Tamás Szarka to be found on the album is a beautiful folk-rock composition."
