"Jointly presenting the musical heritage of the Serbs and Croats of Hungary is more timely ever before. The South Slav music of this country is something unique. The interaction and mutual dependence over many centuries of the many nations of the Carpathian Basin and South East Europe has produced folk art that is at once diverse and an integrated whole."
Vujicsics ensemble was formed in 1974 in Pomaz, in the early days of the folk-dance revival in Hungary. The primary aim was to continue and revive the folk-music heritage of the Serbian communities in the Budapest region (Szentendre, Pomaz, Csobanka, Budakalasz). Later its scope was extended to the folk-music of the Croats of the Danube valley and southern Hungary, including field-work, arrangements, and performance, and the presentation as such of this diverse and colourful folk-music.
Their successes are maybe also due to the fact that for more than 20 years the composition of the ensemble has remained the same. Since the beginning of the 80s they have made records and toured throughout Europe as members of the international ensemble Vents d'Est (Eastern Winds).
"...Gyorgy Martin was one of the most important figure for the so-called 'dance-house movement' in Hungary. He had been collecting folk dances with their music (he made recordings very often either on tape or on film). In his theory the role of the round dances was a very important element, so he collected many South Slavian dances in Hungary - sometimes he did his work with Tihamer Vujicsics. He collected Croatian dances and music along the river Drava which was very impressive for us and later we collected in the same area. Most of the music on our Somogy neighbors LP and on Podravina CD is from that collections..."
