Basin is a great invention. Man can fix up cracklings in it, cook delicious gulasch or rich sheep whey. Quite a lot of stuff had been cooked also within the Carpathian basin in the past centuries. Sometimes with better sometimes with worse ending.

Introduction of CD Recordings of traditional folk music from 1958: OČOVÁ
Series of very spontaneous recordings of folk music from Ocova were obtained in the Czechoslovak Radio Brno in 1958, with contribution of Nestor of Moravian ethnomusicology Dušan Holý and Zdenek Cupák. Jan Gaspar – Hrisko jr., famous Gypsy musician from Ocova and back then also a cimbalist and arranger of Brno Radio Orchestra of Folk Instruments was a kind mediator of this happening. The recordings are valuable documents of playing style of instrumentalists from Ocova: Juraj Jamriska, Juraj Durecka and Martin Danko, as well as other gypsy musicians from Ocova and Zvolenska Slatina. In addition to well-known gypsy band frontman Jozef Berky-Dusan, we can also listen to the rare recordings of play of the older generation of first violinists: Jan Gaspar-Hrisko sr., his son Jozef Gaspar- Hrisko and Jozef Gergel-Totka.
