Czech Center Museum Houston presents Call of Dudy - Bohemian Bagpipes Across the Border
Bagpipes are generally associated with the Celtic Fringe of Europe, but one of the richest and ethnically diverse bagpipe traditions can be found in Central Europe. In the Czech Lands and in Neighboring Bavaria this traditions once became marginalized and almost disregarded. Yet this historical musical form has survived and even managed to renew itself, to develop further on a regional scale – crossing national and linguistic borders. Call of Dudy captures the people and places which are keeping this centuries – old tradition alive today for future generations.
Guests will enjoy free popcorn and snacks as well as see a little exhibit about bagpipes, available for free before the movie.
