The World Roma Festival Khamoro 2017 was successful! Yes, that`s true!. Not only thanks to the great Czech and foreign guests and the skillful organizational team, but also thanks to you, our visitors! Without you, the festival could not exist. So, big thanks to all of you who have come or supported us in a different way!
It's been more than a week since we finished the 19th annual together with the Gypsy anthem in the Prague club Sasazu. If you want to see or remind yourself of the atmosphere of the final galaconcert as well as other events, you can view the photogallery on our facebook profile:
The young Roma guitarist from Verdun (France), Nitcho Reinhardt, is very often called “the whiz kid of Gypsy Jazz”. He has found himself some new band members (guitarist François Gozlan and double bass player Thierry Chanteloup) and started working on his guitar skills even harder, an effort that is paying off in the rapidly growing number of invitations he receives for different gigs around Europe.
On Tuesday 30. 5., Jazz Dock, 21:00
