Makłowicz on “Wesele!”

Grippingly ecstatic, solemn at yet witty, both modern and traditional at once – such is the latest record by Tęgie Chłopy. And if we are left with no other choice than to imitate contemporary Hungarian culture in one way or another, we would be well advised to lean creatively towards our own musical heritage. In this way, we may succeed in determining where it has its beginnings, and how to help it find favour again amongst the people. Thanks to Tęgie Chłopy, this delicious plan seems to have some chance of success.
