Hungarian folk music

Hungarian folk music originated from the music of Asia, where the Finno-Ugric ancestors came from, and the music of the Slavic tribes.

There are also influences of Gypsy music and, to a lesser extent, Turkish music.

Among the researchers of Hungarian folk music, Béla Bartók and Zoltán Kodály played a major role.

They both were not only ethnographers, but also composers, so they borrowed many elements from folk music and added to their works.
