In recent times Zoltan Kallos is one of the most prominent and important figures in folk music research and collection in the Carpathian Basin.
Here Kallos sings songs from his own field work, accompanied by Okros Group. The selections represent nearly every area of Transylvania inhabited by Hungarians: Szilagysag, Kalotaszeg, Mezoseg, Gyimes and Moldavia.
Born in Valaszut (Kolozs country, in Transylvania) in 1926, Zoltán Kallos follows in the tradition of Bartok and Kodaly researching and collecting folk music from within the region known as the Carpathian Basin.
His interest in the folk music of this area started while still at school, and he has collected and researched the music since the late 1940s. Around the 1960s he started recording folk music in the various places he had previously studied, and it is these recordings that make up the Kallos Archive. In addition to these field recordings he has himself recorded the songs he collected with the ensembles ?kr?s and Teka.
