Listen to the podcast:

Naomi Hužovičová learned how to put on a Slovak folk costume when her daughters joined the local folklore group in her town, and even a few years into their hobby, she is still learning something new every year. “The attitude towards folklore has changed a lot in the 15 years I’ve been in Slovakia,” Naomi admits.

Listen to what Naomi has to say on the subject.
