According to the ethnomusicologists, the joint folk music heritage of the Mura and Rába river’s area, folk music and folk dance are not strict traditions, but permanent processes.
Nowadays, only a small part of the region’s collected music can be found and researched digitally, the bigger part – especially the previously collected ones – can be found in smaller collections or analog media, and they mostly are incomplete.
In this project, we work on the authentic folk music of the program area. We make the tunes and the musical sheets digitally available, researchable and usable. Our goal is to explore the region’s centuries-old joint music roots and spread the joint folk music widely, that could help diminish the borders.
