Negreni (Feketetó, "Black Lake”) is a small village in Romania, where a national fair has been held every autumn since the 19th century. In a multi-ethnic country, which is shared by Romanians, Hungarians, Roma, Jews and Saxons, it was natural that the fair should also be a meeting point of cultures.

Until the end of 20th century, musicians would bring along their instruments. It was enough to take a walk through the fair to enjoy the music of different ethnicities, with mutual influence being a very real, rather than virtual, experience.

"What Feketetó as a symbolic space means for me is the equal value of cultures: they connect, rather than divide, us. And it may be easier to respect and accept an ‘alien' culture if you can see your own face in it.” (Károly Cserepes)

Presented by: Budapest Spring Festival
