Sit in on a Transylvanian wedding in Kalotaszag. Youll only get a sneak peak, though, since this ceremony and accompanying festivities lasted from 10am on a Sunday to 4 am Monday. Never mind, youll still get to sample some music played during the church ceremony, the gypsy tune that just about interrupts the end of the church ceremony and draws everyone out into the yard, and all of the mourning songs and lively dances to follow.
