1987 – Op.Transreplica Meccano (Hungisthan version LP)

Transreplica_LP-HM-007_Front

Modern industrial societies and their overwhelming superiority in technology and dynamic expansion are totally reorganizing the world. All traditional cultures that are alien to these technologically “homogeneous” societies are doomed to extinction. This means that there’s a real possibility that traditional cultures will expire before they can enter “world-culture” circulation. Bearing all of this in mind, Lāszlō Hortobāgyi set up the “Gāyan Uttejak Society” in Budapest, Hungary 1981. Since then it has been active – among other things – as a music studio and maintains a remarkable library of oriental music, the only one in eastern europe. It was named after the hindu-moslem musician’s society (1884-1917) founded by V. N. Bhātkhānde. The members of the Gāyan Uttejak Society in Budapest have made it their duty to practice and to study classical indian music.
