The biggest Romani festival in the world, KHAMORO, has launched its video advertisement this year, which features shots of the atmosphere of the event from previous years. Festival producer Džemil Silajdžić curates its musical selections.
The 20-second video ad will be broadcast on Czech Television's ČT1 channel until 2 June. The video spot can also be seen online on YouTube.
This year's festival will take place at the end of May and continue through the start of June, offering, as usual, a mixture of genres performed by the best interpreters of Romani music in the world. The festival features a rich side program, including the much-loved performers' parade in the center of Prague, the children's day, exhibitions, workshops and sports matches.
