Thread Name: Folk music in Prague. Help!
Subject: RE: Folk music in Prague. Help!
Thanks for the information, Leeneia. "Bland" food I can cope with !

Yes, I am familiar with Cimboloms (thanks for the link) because I like Romanian and Hungarian music, which often feature this amazing instrument. I tend to feel a little sorry for Cimbolom players though, 'cos most folk musicians play instruments which are reasonably portable, but it must be a real pain in the posterior moving a Cimbolom for one venue to another ............. unless there is a method of folding them up or "semi flat packing" them for transit!!

I will certainly ask for "Cimbolom music", as you suggest.

I am heading off to the airport in a couple of hours now and will let you know how I fared in my quest for traditional Czech music when I get back home again.

Best Regards,
Anne XX.
