"The Afghan Women Orchestra – Ensemble Zohra was brought to my attention by my colleague Alžbeta, and I immediately knew that we had artists for a Saturday celebratory concert. It is a real celebration of music and freedom, all musicians and their team deserve admiration and respect. It’s one of the most logistically difficult realization in the history of Pohoda, but it’s worth it. We are also preparing several concerts outside the festival for Zohra, and we want to introduce these great brave musicians to other cities in Slovakia, too,”said Michal Kaščák about the booking.
