Recorded in Budapest in 2018, this album features traditional Hungarian folk songs in unique handmade settings, with both traditional and original accompaniment. Vadalma learned the songs directly from village singers across the Carpathian Basin, and re-imagined them with new frames, crafted to cherish the richness of this music.
