Editor's note: all horos aside this ain't bad dancing music (as IF I danced! In my head I did though). It thumps and it bumps and jangles and jingles and trumpets rather ebulliently. Repetition must be a central theme in these songs because I had to keep checking if the record was skipping because the same sections seemed to play over and over. It must just be my untrained ear or part of the structure. Anyhow, very powerful ethnic music if you're eager to have a sock hop or something akin to it.

I'm glad to post it! If I find any more LPs by them I'll be sure to post them as well.

This shouldn't be labeled as Hungarian. It is 100% Macedonian.
