Romania 1964

These few recordings were made in the village of Dragus in Transylvania, where, in 1929, the Romanian ethnomusicologist Constantin Brailoiu had made a study of funeral laments. Evidently guided by the advice of Mihai Pop at the Institutul de Etnografie si Folclor in Bucharest, Alan Lomax visited Dragus after his August 1964 trip to the Soviet Union. He recorded children and a few older women singing dance songs, love songs, and lullabies.
