Mónika Lakatos and the Gipsy Voices represented Hungary at the 5 Folk Festival in Kungsträdgården in Stockholm. The Swedish É Romani Glinda association hosted the event for the 6th time this year as a celebration of the versatile cultural, music and dance traditions of the five ethnic minorities, the Roma, Jews, Swedish Finns, the Sami and Tornedalers living in Sweden.
The festival is usually visited by thousands of people. Despite the rainy weather the Hungarian Mónika Lakatos and the Gipsy Voices gave an outstanding performance which got many members of the audience on their feet to start dancing. The concert was organized with the help and support of the Hungarian Embassy.
