This legendary avant-garde group went against the grain of the Communist regime and due to its non-conformism often suffered serious problems such as arrests.It was in protest of these arrests and prosecutionthat led playwright Václav Havel and others to write the Charter 77.
The entrance to all SOUNDCZECH concerts is free.
The event is organized by the Czech Centre Bucharest with support of Staropramen.
