For the record, I wanted to cover songs that had a special effect on me in recent years. Folk songs will always be relevant, their message is eternal. People feel their roots through their folk music, their identity through their mother tongue. World music – as well as this material – is now looking for answers to the question: how is it possible, or perhaps worthwhile, to play ancient songs in our modern world?
The musical context in which we place them says a lot about what a folk song brings out of us, how it moves us, how it affects us. This makes the interpretation truly personal. It is a fantastic inner and shared journey.
The musical reflections on the songs (which we often formulated together “cutting into each other’s words“) finally came together on the record into a common essence, a lesson. The record turned out to be quite eclectic, as we relied solely on our intuition when processing the songs, on a wide spectrum of music, without borders.

I’ve been listening to various of the Hunnia Records’ Pure DSD256 recordings downloadable from NativeDSD. There are very many that I like both for the music and for the quite stellar sound quality. This album, “Whole Wide World,” with lead vocalist Bori Magyar and backing musicians is a very nice studio recording of world music. Boyi Magyar identifies herself as a “world music singer.” Whatever musical tradition she chooses to pursue, her voice is beautiful and her musicianship a pleasure to hear.
