A concert - performance by Gelu Duminică and the Marian Mexicanu Band
In this unique event, professor and Roma activist Gelu Duminică invites us to consider the contribution of the Roma minority to the evolution of Romanian folklore. The lecture will combine facts about the history and culture of the Roma people with the music of a band performing live on stage, for 90 minutes. The band will be led by the great accordion player, Marian Mexicanu.
