The famous Hungarian folk piece, Csárdás arranged by Vittori Monti.

Enjoy this rendition of this famous violin virtuoso piece as documented at an impromptu concert in the Montréal Metro at Lionel-Groulx Station.

Csárdás is a traditional Hungarian folk dance, the name derived from csárda (old Hungarian term for tavern). It originated in Hungary and was popularized by Romani music (Cigány) bands in Hungary and neighboring lands of Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Burgenland, Croatia, Ukraine, Russia, Poland, Transylvania and Moravia, as well as among the Banat Bulgarians, including those in Bulgaria.
