Storytelling is the art of live speech. While it has rigorous structure and script, words are constantly formed and shaped to accommodate the listener's age, mood, etc. Folk tales have been the “university of poor people” as they have been used to not just to entertain but also to educate audiences.  

We would like to showcase 3-4 folktales from Hungary told by Bumberák in English, pre-recorded.
