Ferenc Tobak has long been interested in finding and documenting Hungarian Csángó bagpipers in Moldavia, one of the eastern provinces of Romania.  In 1998 he was able to begin this project in earnest, and traveled to Moldavia to search for  traditional Hungarian pipers and their communities. He visited Romania several times over the years, 

documenting with photography, and audio and video recordings.  The advanced age of many of the musicians, particularly the pipers, gave an urgency to the project for Ferenc to preserve this once-vibrant tradition.
