Lukas Pokuta; Dominik Pacan, Stefan Pecha & Erik Pacan performed a medley of Romani songs alongside Robin Grey at the Sheffield Youth music event at Yellow Arch studios on Sunday 8th July.
The boys were welcomed to the event and took the chance to sing with Robin accompanying them on guitar. The organisers of Sheffield music services were delighted to hear the songs and meet the boys. Plenty of applause and a photo with Sheffield Magic Magid, the Lord Mayor.
Well done everybody involved.
Roma children in Sheffield came together for a poetry workshop, facilitated by Coco Neal. The poetry written was centered around the theme of “Home”.
For many of the children involved it was their first time writing poetry. The film was entered into the Travellers Times Poetry competition which is part of the GRT History month.
