The Voices of the World programme consists of Ruthenian songs collected by the Czech theatre ensemble Farma v jeskyni (Farm in a Cave) during a number of expeditions to eastern Slovakia. The performers are young people from 10 countries from around the world who rehearsed the songs under the guidance of Hana Varadzinová and Maji Jawor. For most of the performers the concert was their first public presentation. Czech artist Ondřej Smeykal led the chamber ensemble of musicians playing the Australian didjeridoo.
