AfterPhurikaneMusic project AfterPhurikane Gila is based on the anthropological investigation in Roma settlements in Slovakia, where Jana Belisova collected hundreds of old Roma songs. After this research she organized a workshop where six talented Roma singers met with three professional musicians and tried to make music together. And so powerful multicultural project started. Documentary film records one week long meeting of singers and musicians in Veľký Slavkov in August 2009, where songs for the music project AfterPhurikane Giľa were recorded in a local Evangelical church. The film brings a new dimension of reality, humour, and absurdity to the music.
