The flying Szeklers from Baja, Southern Hungary / Les Sicules volants de Baja, Hongrie méridionale.

This is a Szekler dance, from Transylvania, I mean Szekelyföld, where the Szeklers (Hungarian population) still live – in nowadays Romania (see my Transylvania article). Szekler dances are considered as Hungaricum (a controversial notion though… I hope to be able to sharpen the concept someday soon), so you can also find it in Baja on a fish soup day (in July), hundreds of km away from its original land.
