Tanchaz Talk is one of the few English-language programs on the world focusing primarily on Hungarian folk music. The host of the show is Kalman Magyar (Öcsi), one of North America’s leading Hungarian folk musicians and personalities. “Interviews” podcast episodes feature long-form interviews with a wide range of guests.
Kalman has been an instrumental personality in the Tanchaz movement since the 1980’s, first with the band Eletfa in New York, and now with Gyanta in Toronto. He is also a lawyer. He initially launched the show in the wake of the mass cancellations caused by the COVID-19 pandemic as a way to keep Tanchaz music enthusiasts connected.
