Reader feedback: Cheers from Australia

A very interesting article ["Dance, sing and don't forget home", By Mirna Šolić, Vol. 8, No.3, January 28 - February 3], especially as I saw a Slovak band perform one Easter at the Slovak social club in the Melbourne suburb of Laverton about six or seven years ago. I wonder if it was Čarobna Noc? Probably was. As my wife and father are Slovak I am interested in any further information on where this band is playing.
