You are all invited to celebrate the concept “Singing to the River” through Roma Night.
Singing to the River is thought as a metaphor and as a new beginning of a concept that describes the story of gathering people from different profiles, melodies, and sounds of musical instruments over the bridges.
In such events we are inviting people to listen and feel how the music touches the river. We aim to make this a tradition, the tradition of singing to the river. The Roma Night event is being organized in partnership with Ojq Nevo Koncepti.
