Newsroom 29/06/2009 | 17:43

Three young musicians from Berlin who took the name of Hyperactive Kid performed for the Romanian public in a show that mingled jazz with rock, drum & bass and new music at the Romanian Cultural Institute (ICR). Jazz artist Harry Tavitian & Orient Express also performed on this night. The band made a splash at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington in 1999, Hanover World Exhibition, Cormons Festival in Italy and other events. The ICR also showcased an exhibition called At the Expats' Home, with pictures of the families of expats living in Bucharest, many of whom graduated from the Romanian classes organized by the Institute.
The Greek Cultural Foundation offered a selection of movies. “From the Snow” by Sotiris Goritsas tells of two young refugees and a child who travel from Albania to Greece in hope of a better life. However, once they get there, they are confronted by intolerance. “Eduart” by Angeliki Antoniou is about a young man from Kosovo who is imprisoned in Greece for killing a man. The Cultural Center of the Hungarian Republic hosted a concert by Bakos Arpad, a notable Hungarian cultural figure. Arpad plays Hungarian folk songs mainly in the company of Macedonian musicians using Balkan instruments.
Last but not least, the Czech Center welcomed the public to a night of old and new animation movies. These were both Czech animations, films by the French community in Belgium, and Romanian animations selected especially for this event.
