What is The Fono?
In traditional Hungary, fono meant “spinnery,” a house in the village people could come together after the day’s work was done. They would bring their spindles and flax, sewing and embroidery, whittling, their musical instruments, and they would spend the evening chatting, singing, dancing, drinking, all while crafting beautiful things.
