Third Hungarian Jew's Harp Festival Kecskemet

September 21-23, 2007

Jew's harp (doromb) is one of the oldest and most universal instruments in the world. Its history goes back more than 15000 years, and it's known almost all over the globe.

By organizing the Third Hungarian Jew's Harp Festival, the Kecskemet Youth Center continues in the tradition of introducing the most acknowledged players worldwide along the best Hungarian Jew's harpers and bands. The board of the International Jew's Harp Society visited the festival in 2005, and chose Kecskemet to be the organizer of the 7th International Jew's Harp Festival and Conference in 2010, at which more than 50 nations are expected to participate.

The chief organizer of the event is Aron Szilagyi, a board member of the International Jew's Harp Society, and internationally acknowledged musician. He was the program organizer of the Jew's Harp World Festival in Amsterdam in 2006, and he is organizing the program for the 6th International Koukin Festival in Hokkaido in 2008.
