    Hungarian razzle music history

    This week, we are going on the razzle; that means we are evoking – with the aid of our database photos – how Hungarians enjoyed themselves in the past centuries, sometimes in delight, sometimes in sorrow. The Hungarian song and ‘gypsy music’ are almost synonyms, in addition, the most famous songwriters and musicians, virtuosos are gypsies. In our short music history, we are examining how this interaction developed, how the song become an entertaining genre – rooted in Hungarian folk music and heated by the romantic nationalism of the Reform Age.

Virtual exhibitions

Besides searching and browsing digitized cultural contents, visitors can view thematic virtual exhibitions from the records of MaNDA’s database, which are widened weekly. Our aim with the exhibitions is to introduce the cultural contents of the database in a new context, in a way that they would never be in the same virtual room otherwise, due to their spatial, legal or formal features. You can see our former exhibitions under this menu.
