Kecskemét, Bács-Kiskun, Hungary (1882 – 1967)
Zoltán Kodály (16th December 1882–6th March 1967) was a Hungarian composer, ethnomusicologist, educator, linguist, and philosopher.
Kodály was one of the first people to undertake the serious study of folk song. Around 1906 he and fellow composer Béla Bartók published several collections of folk music together, and they both show the influence of folk music in their own compositions.
