HISTORY OF THE ACCORDION IN HUNGARY

On the chromatic accordion, Hungarian accordionists excelled. As in Romania, bands played traditional dances. Bebe Serban was one of the most well known accordionists. Jazz accordionists were more prominent in Hungary than any other Eastern country.

Two professional accordionists from Hungary are Lajos Bobula and his student Jean Sinko. Joseph H Hamori was the first Hungarian to play musette accordion, which he brought back to his native land after visiting Paris in the late 1930's.
