"The Gypsies were on their way the ball

But none of them had the right clothes..."

Well, this fall the Őrkő Gypsies really were on their way, but they weren't going to a ball, as in the song. They Were on their way to the Etnofon Recording Studio in Budapest to record a bit of their special knowledge and talent - a few pieces from their scintillating singing tradition. It was a big adventure for them and the first time they had stood in front of a microphone to sing their grandparents' songs, documenting them for posterity and for their grandchildren to listen to someday.
