Reader feedback: Vidiek showed up with Slivovica

Re: The band Vidiek tours America, Culture Shorts, Nov 24 - 30, Vol 9, No, 45

I attended the Vidiek concert on November 25 at the Slovak embassy in Washington, DC. This was the first rock concert ever held at the new Slovak Chancery and it was a huge success - one of the best events ever held at the embassy. Over 200 people attended. Vidiek played many of their classic hits and also songs from their new CD, which they christened with Slivovica at the embassy. Igor Otcenas, First Secretary for Culture and Science, is doing a wonderful job.

His Slovak film series, art exhibits, and the series of Slovak music and dance performances at the embassy are first rate. But Vidiek was the best performance yet. The audience was about 85 percent Slovak and Czech, including a lot of students and nannies. Some of the kids were dancing, and others were clapping and cheering for much of the concert. Events like this one are partially funded by a group called Friends of Slovakia: http://www.friendsofslovakia.org
