A BIT OF MACEDONIA IN PORTUGAL
A Macedonian cultural week was held in Portugal recently.
The seven day event contained presentations of Macedonian music, film, photography, literature and cuisine.
It started with a photograph exhibition by Aleksandar Kondev, a presentation of the films "Before the Rain" and "The Great Water", followed by literary readings with Macedonian authors Zoran Ancevski and Vera Cejkovska, as well as the poet Vasco Grassa Mura, who has won the Struga Poetry Evenings’ “Golden Wreath”, along with two other Portuguese poets.
The event was closed with a magnificent concert of Esma Redzepova.
MD: This was the first ever cultural contact between these countries and we sure need more of those!
