The well-known Hungarian folk band Kaláka performed for the first time at the Hungarian picnic in Tel Aviv, Israel, last Friday.
In addition to the concert, the Hungarian Embassy in Tel Aviv welcomed Israelis with craft activities, Hungarian folk dance and cuisine. The event was organized to mark the anniversary of the Hungarian national holiday, the 1848-49 Revolution and Freedom Fight.
The event was attended by hundreds of people, mainly Hungarian-speaking, particularly young families from all over Israel. Levente Benkő, Hungary’s Ambassador to Tel Aviv, and Judit West, President of the Efraim Kishont Foundation, which runs Hungarian schools in Israel, welcomed the guests.
The Kaláka band’s highly successful concert included a performance of Sándor Petőfi’s poems on the bicentenary of the poet’s birth.
