Info for Bihar

In addition to exploring the hitherto unknown treasures of Hungarian folk music, as a composer and folklorist Béla Bartók (1881-1945) worked tirelessly to collect and study the folk music of the surrounding peoples. He looked for ancient, old-style melodies: those that were the most typical of different ethnicities. He found these in peasant communities where, in the early 20th century, people still led a traditional form of life. He also examined how neighboring communities influenced each other's folk music. From 1909 to 1918 he collected nearly 3500 Romanian instrumental and vocal melodies.

The music you will hear on Attacca World Music’s BIHAR album uses this abundant collection as source material. Our musical interpretations were inspired by the instrumental and vocal melodies that Béla Bartók collected in Bihor county. (Béla Bartók: Cântece poporale româneşti din comitatul Bihor (Ungaria) / Chansons populaires roumaines du département Bihar (Hongrie). Bucureşti, 1913.)

The album also contains the arrangements of a few Hungarian folk melodies from Transylvanian Hungarians. Folksongs, a shared work by Béla Bartók and Zoltán Kodály, originally published in 1923. The arrangements combine authentic folk music elements from the Carpathian Basin with our own world music sound.

Creativity and the freedom of creation with the tools of music and dance. This is the philosophy of Attacca. Attacca is the progressive forum of world music. Their own compositional music blends contemporary jazz, folk music (Hungarian, Balkan, Turkish), and also elements and characteristics from the 20th century music, especially the musical world of Bartók’s and Kodály’s.

The Világom music and dance performance is also made with contemporary folk dance choreography performed by Dániel Bodnár. Attacca’s individual world music is made even more colourful by the visual experience of professional dance.

We warmly recommend the world music band Attacca’s Világom music and dance performance!
