Kárpátia - Ugye gondolsz néha rám

Thousands of Hungarians are living outside the frontiers of Hungary, as a result of the redistribution of their territory after WWI. Suddenly they had a new passport and had to talk another language. They still haven't adapted to the change and there's a lot of resentment against the neighbouring countries who gained Hungarian territories. That's the background to this kind of nationalistic music. Difficult situiation, but I'm sure the worst idea is to promote nationalism and fuel the fire, as Kárpátia seems to do. Nevertheless, not understanding all they say, I must confess to be partial with regards to deep voices and all forms of longing for freedom and liberation.
