Czech folklore in Bratislava

POPULAR Czech folk band Čechomor will hold only one concert in Slovakia during its Changes Tour 2003, on April 14 at Bratislava's Pasienky Sports Hall. The Czech musicians will host singer Lenka Dusilová and the 40-piece Collegium of the Czech Philharmonic, conducted by Ondřej Vrabec.

The title of the tour is named after the song Changes, which was awarded the prize for the best song of last year by the Czech Academy of Popular Music. Čechomor was named the best band and received an award for the best album of 2002.

The band played a role in the recent Czech movie Rok Ďábla (The Year of Devil) directed by Petr Zelenka. The film was awarded the main prize - the Crystal Globe - at the international film festival in Karlove Vary and won six Lions (the Czech version of Oscars).
