That evening, we attended an extravagant dinner. First, we had snacks in the courtyard while traditional musicians and dancers performed. Then we went inside to begin the program. In addition to several award presentations, we witnessed the graduation of the students of the Master of Business Administration program of the Open University of Malaysia. My favorite part of the program was a performance of Robert Schumann's "Carnaval" by Gábos Judith, the head of the music department. After her performance we had a delicious four course meal.
Now let me come back to the traditional dancers and musicians. They were my favorite part of the evening. I took these short videos so everyone can enjoy the experience. This first video is two men playing flute and bass. The bass player is not using a traditional technique. Instead he is striking and tapping the bass more like a percussion instrument.
In this video, we can see a trio of string instruments playing a traditional Hungarian song. I have heard this before but I cannot remember the name.
