Today most of its inhabitants speak Romanian as their main language; once predominant, the Hungarian speaking community is still present, as well as a large Gypsy minority, once trilingual Romani -Hungarian-Romaniannowadays speaking predominantly Romanian. The dance and music of the Transylvanian Baroque and Renaissance periods were preserved and gradually developed into a unique style in this area of Transylvania. The interweaving and intermingling of Hungarian, Romanian, Gypsy and Transylvania-German cultures here has resulted in raising the dance and music to the highest levels.
The first documentation of Gypsy peoples inhabiting Transylvania dates to the year During the period spanning between the 16th and 18th centuries, they merged into the musical tradition of their environment. Gypsy bands became common in Hungary in the second half of the 18th century.
Most of them no longer speak Hungarian, but アニメタル・レディーのテーマ - Animetal Lady - Animetal Lady Marathon remained Protestant the religion of the Hungarians in that area of Transylvaniaand often bear Hungarian names. Hence, they have been forced to seek other jobs or to perform migrant labour. Bands using newer instruments such as the clarinet Give Me Love, Give Me Life - Roger Hodgson - In The Eye Of The Storm accordion which are common in other areas of Transylvania remain unfashionable in the environs of Palatka.
The violas account for the density of the accompaniment. The curve on the bridge of the viola is flattened so that the strings can be sounded simultaneously.
Mostly major triads are played. The double bass is altered by replacing the bottom E string with the A string, centering the D string across the nut, fingerboard, bridge and tailpiece and leaving the G string in its original position.
Although it now has only three gut strings as is the convention in other areas of Transylvania and Hungaryonly the A string is played, which is tuned up a minor third to a C played across an octave.
It is common here, as generally in more traditional areas of the Carpathian Basin, for instrumental and vocal melody line not to conform to the system of equal temperamentPuciné - Gyula Toki Horváth And His Gipsy Band* - Famous Hungarian Folk Songs the musicians themselves generally do not read music nor think within this system.
Melodies—all of Transylvanian type—fall into two groups: those exclusively instrumental, and those that have a sung form. While Hungarians and Romanians generally know the lyrics of the melodies, the Romani musicians generally do not; as they were not expected to sing at the parties they were engaged to perform at vocal music being considered the "noble part" of music in most traditional societies. By tradition, a single dance is not performed in isolation from its repertoire, as the customary dance set is, rather, a suite Puciné - Gyula Toki Horváth And His Gipsy Band* - Famous Hungarian Folk Songs dances performed in a fixed order.
The dance suite lasts for half an hour to an hour, consists of three to five dances, with short breaks, danced with the same partner from start to finish. This is the largest functional unit of dance and music within Puciné - Gyula Toki Horváth And His Gipsy Band* - Famous Hungarian Folk Songs dance events of the area. During the course of such an event, this cycle is repeated time and again with little variation.
There is a gradual building up within the cycle. As one of the very few remaining expressions of Palatka Music, the Palatka Gypsy Band can be considered the last avatar of a centuries-old tradition. In other words: under-marketing the artists for the sake of authenticity might prove to bring the opposite result: seeing even more folk musicians migrate towards mass-market genres, or abandoning music altogether for more gainful occupations.
After completing music school in Cluj-Napoca, his father offered to pay for further studies at the Music Conservatory. This would have meant intensive training in classical music and acquiring a social status hardly compatible with the Gypsy routine of playing at peasant weddings, funerals etc.
And so he did. Having learnt Romani and Romanian at home, long stays in Hungary during his youth and, later on, an intensive concert routine there, gave him the occasion to become unlike his fellow Black White - Asian Dub Foundation - Rafis Revenge fluent in Hungarian as well. He is the only member of the band who chiefly resides in an urban centre Cluj.
His higher educational level allowed him to develop a keen understanding of the values contained in the cultural heritage of his family and village community, so that Florin can reasonably be described as a folk purist. His style particularly his sense of rhythm is further influenced by his exceptional dancing skills. Once a very good dancer, at the age of sixty-six he still indulges, from time to time, in short dance performances to please his public.
Since then, already with Florin Codoba in charge, many other "informal" sound and video recordings have been made and commercialized either on a local basis or by Japanese folk music researchers; the latter might be available in Japan. Unfortunately, they do not seem to be available online.
