Folk music of the Balkan Peoples, and of the Southern Slavic Nationalities living in Hungary.
A selection of folk songs and dance tunes from many parts of the Balkans. Illustrates the wide diversity in folk music from the Balkans. Dances and melodies from Serbia, Hungary, Moldavia, Crete, Thrace, Romania etc.
The Rece-Fice Ensemble was founded in 1992. Their aim is to get acquainted with the folk music and dances of the peoples from the Balkans (Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia, Thrace) and of South-Slavs (Serbs and Croats) living in Hungary. Some members of the band are from these backgrounds themselves, and others combine their music careers with studying Bulgarian or ethnography. When forming the ensemble, its members were partly beginners, partly musicians gaining experience in other music styles and groups. In recent years they have successfully performed on numerous occasions, from folk music festivals to balls, university clubs to folk pubs.
While extending their repertoire continuously they strive for a more authentic performing style by discovering the specific features of different regions. To achieve this they try to seek out original folk musicians still alive and existing archive material. They also acquire original musical instruments or make them according to authentic designs. (One of their members is an instrument-maker and holder of the "Young Master of Folk Arts" award.
