Title World Roma festival Khamoro
AuthorLanguage
Cezch and English
Description / Summary Yearly festival. The Khamoro Festival includes Romani traditional music and introduces also interpreters of the contemporary Romani music and the world-known gypsy jazz, as it was particularly the mixture of traditional and modern elements and avoidance of stereotype, which the Festival was endowed with by its founders.Namely for this reason, the Festival has never concentrated only on music and dancing as this would foster the deep-rooted preconceptions on the Roma being nothing more than brilliant musicians. The basic concept of the Festival is to present everything that the Roma culture brings to the world, and thus connect people.
