Drumming for Bubny

16 October at 5pm
Bubny Station

Our ninth drumming event to loudly express our opposition to silently watching things that should not happen.

For anyone wondering why we should be drumming today, all you have to do is read the news from the Near East.

There is no question that the war in the Holy Land is an entirely different conflict than the one begun by Nazi Germany. But civilians are dying. People who gathered to pray on a holy day have been kidnapped and taken hostage.

On 16 October, it will be 82 years since the first Jewish transport left occupied Prague carrying citizens of our capital city. Their deportation from the cultured world robbed prewar Prague of its unique voice.

This year’s Drumming for Bubny will be set to a jazz rhythm as David Nussbaum, American percussion icon of the 1980s, engages in a musical dialogue with the Žižkov music school’s Bigband Plus. Our joint happening, hosted by Ondřej Konrád, is followed by a concert by Libor Šmoldas’s NYC Trio in memory of all who left to the unknown.

Own drums are welcome, but not a requirement.

Starting at 4pm, you and your children can join students from the Přírodní Škola secondary school in decorating your drums. The event is held under the auspices of the Embassy of the State of Israel.
