Istvánfi Balázs belongs to the new generation of Hungarian bagpipers. He taught bag pipe playing at the Hungarian Folk Music School in Obuda, and also makes them. He is a member of the Kalamona Band and often joins the Hungarian Bagpipe Orchestra in concert as well as playing solo.
In the last piece on this CD he pays homage to Béla Bartók, who without his tireless research work into folk music the Hungarian bagpipe tradition would be significantly poorer today.
