Sometimes you just need to lighten up. And what better way than listening to music at a Paprika Festival. You have to hang in there until the cimbalom player strolls in, sits down, and starts wailing away on his instrument. There’s a charming casual air to the video since everyone keeps walking in from on the camera, carrying little cups of who-knows-what.
The cimbalom is the distinguished European ancestor of my hammered dulcimer, even if it rather looks like a piano with the top removed and features dampers.
You’ll have to go find your own goulash to accompany the music! Or plan on getting to the next festival.
