You have reached the Hungarian website of Magyar Nóta
Magyar Nóta is a Dutch foundation with the purpose to organize activities in order to promote the traditional folk and gipsy music that has been played for centuries in the restaurants, hotels and coffee house in Hungary and Romania.
For decades amateur musicians have been playing this folk music in The Netherlands. Most of them started to do so in their college days in university and never stopped thereafter.
Unfortunately this type of music seems to disappear from The Netherlands. Also in Hungary, the home of this rich musical culture, the attention for this type of music is decreasing. Many (gipsy) musicians, often for generations making their living with this music, are getting into trouble.
With the Magyar Nóta foundation we aim to preserve the music for the generations to come.
