(Autobus) CD + Enhanced CD $18.00

Beginning in the 1950s, ethnomusicologist Király has been collecting the vocal and instrumental music of the people of the Voïvodine region (Hungarian, Serbs, Croats, Slovaks, gypsies) as well as their folk instruments: zithers, drums, flutes and fifes. Includes "The Little Glutton," an opera for children based on a folk tale recorded in 1963; early '70s recordings with Katalin Ladlik and Ensemble Acezantez on citraphone, tablophone, acoustic guitar and zither; and a 1998 home-recorded tablophone solo improvisation. CD-ROM is a 24-minute solo performance on zither, recorded live at Le Batofar in Paris in 1999.
