The team of the European Association of Folklore Festivals congratulates on the international holiday both music lovers and instrumentalists and orchestrators who create it, reminding them of Plato's words that "Music gives soul to the universe, wings of mind, flight of imagination and life of everything". Keep appreciating and creating the art of sounds!
