Folk Music of Slovakia
The Slovaks are a Slavic people, closely related to the Czechs. Due to long-term political ties, Hungarian music has also been influential in Slovakia.

Folk instruments include the fujara ( a flute), bagpipes and others, used to make dance music called cardas. Lyrics often concern a local hero named Janosik, a legendary highwayman who brought justice for the oppressed and poor.
