I would like to introduce you to a man who is a virtuoso with his numerous "Heligonky" or button accordions, a collector of forgotten folk music of the Upper Hron region, a singer and a dancer within the Telgart folklore troupe.

I have know Mater for number of years - since 1993 to be exact. Together we have recorded over 10 hours of Uper Hron valley (Horehron) songs and music that Matej has arranged to suit his stile. Presented here are some of those songs that illustrate the talents that he has exhibited to me over the past number of years.

 
Note: You need RealAudio (RA) 2.0 and preferably RA 3.0 to fully appreciate his music.
