In the Spotlight

The first evening of the Festival was organized in the heart of Stolipinovo (April 28th). A stage was built on the main street of the Roma neighborhood and it gathered large audience.

Roma, Bulgarian and foreign people, children and grown- ups danced, sang and had fun together.

Young Roma talents with illuminating costumes presented an incredible mixture of music, dance and light. Hip- hop, rap and beat-box performers demonstrated their abilities in the spotlight.

There were also traditional Roma dances and music played by professional Roma musicians. The light installation “Worlds”, based on the concept of the young Roma participants in the workshop, was presented during the event.
