Kabir Message

If one tries to understand what really awaits us with the first sacred music festival Kabir, stumbles upon something that is not reachable by words, it is something that will need to be experienced on our own. For sure for three days the next weekend of 6th, 7th and 8th of April we will be busy with it. In the mornings and afternoons they will screen films on Kabir, which could give us the key to the beginning of understanding. Evenings full of different musicians and artist, and since the group is big it will be hard to avoid them in all.
