“People express and celebrate the rich diversity of cultural identities in Europe through folk and traditional music and associated performing arts” European Folk Network
Hello,
We had a great time last week in Budapest during the European Folk Network Conference. Our hosts at the Hungarian Heritage House were fantastic, and it was so nice to meet in-person friends and colleagues from all over Europe after so long time. All are fully or partly dedicated to the protection and promotion of Europe’s folk and traditional music and associated performing arts in their various forms and origins.
The conference program was full of inputs by various experts and the discussion groups produced interesting ideas. All participants enjoyed the evening at Fono Dance House for a dinner and group dance lesson, as well as the closing concert event with Enyedi Ágnes & Soma Salamon Duo, Magos folk band, Babra & The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble. The tour of the Hungarian Heritage House archive was more than instructive.
I was personally amazed by the great (and innovative) work put forward within the framework of the Polyphony and MOST projects, which could be replicated in various parts of Europe.
If you’re not yet a member of EFN, I deeply encourage you to join this very young pan-European network as an individual or organisation/company. It’s full of promises and a very exciting venture.
Hearing from you soon.
Eric
