Kromproom feat. Centurio - Danced with a robot - dubstep remix (A legényes)

Piotr "Kromproom" Krompiewski, while on vacation in Hungary, came across a folklore festival during which he recorded by mobile phone a man's solo dance called legényes. After returning from vacation, he put to the footage the dubstep remixed track, that is taken from the maxi-single entitled Danced with a robot. This activity was not intended to create an official video for this track. Just as the "legenyes" dance is free in style, the idea of combining this music with the video had been also spontaneous.

A legényes (in Hungarian) or feciorească (in Romanian) is a men's solo dance done by
Transylvanian people (both ethnic Hungarian and Romanian) living in the Kalotaszeg/Ţara Călatei, Szilágyság/Sălaj, and Mezőség/Câmpia Transilvaniei regions of Transylvania, roughly the region around Cluj. Although usually danced by young men, it can be also danced by older men. The dance is performed freestyle usually by one dancer at a time in front of the band. Women participate in the dance by standing in lines to the side and sing/shout verses while the men dance. Each lad does a number of points (dance phrases) typically 4 to 8 without repetition. Each point consists of 4 parts, each lasting 4 counts. The first part is usually the same for everyone (there are only a few variations).
