Thank you for the opportunity that we could spend the day with you. Mediawave is a tiny festival with big heart. We arrived early in the morning on Saturday, the fortress and the guests were just waking up. It was good to start our presence like this. We found our place a little bit slowly like when you are just walking up and down still sleepy in your appartmant. Finally we started to build the manadala in front of the bastion on the field. In front of us, as if the River Danube had brought people on the shambling tows to put a stone, a drawing, flowers, pearls or plants to the mandala growing more and more colourful. Many children and adulst participated and then a miracle, a common work of art was born.

This project came alive for the Long Lasting Mediawave from the meeting of a folk music band, a puppet theratre actress and a fine artist. The participants: Katalin Ér i -vocal, double bass; Éva Gózon - vocal, violin; Júlia Nedeczky - saxophon, vocal; Léna Tekauer - vocal, koboz; Sára Tímár - vocal, Kriszta Tóth - tale teller; Gabi Makhult - illustrations
The Forgó ensemble was formed in 2008, they shape Hungarian and other nations' folk music to their own voice. Beside the thorough knowledge of pure source, the aesthetics is very important to them with the help of which they turn the original tunes to whirling. Their keystones are female poliphony and the colourfulness, the feature of each of them. An extract from the performance can be watched in the details.

As it might be suspected from the promotional material, our east-trend cultural mining has brought a treasure to the surface. It is recommended to remember the excellent musicians: Yegor Zabelov - accordion, Alexander Efimov - vass, Vova Berger - drum
Zabelov's band, who made the audience dance from the second half of their show, belongs to a style and genre impossible to define (like e.g. Íva Bittová) that is an extra merit for us. Let's not talk about them too much, you should rather listen to their music starting softly and getting more and more intense. Our cameramen unfortunatelly missed the first such tranquil start, so the video is almost completed... See the details.
“Slow river...” is experimenting a new/old form of community togetherness trying to balance the conditions of today’s consumption based trends. We are willing to apply „craftsmanship - based” implementation instead of industrial organization. Started as a „by - product” of the 26 years old Mediawave Selective 2010 in Őriszentpéter, after that within the framwork of Ördögkatlan Festival between 2011-2015. In 2016 we will start at a new location, the Castle of Somogyfajsz and the surrounding natura park. The goal is art-mediation, building communities, living in the nature/living together with nature.
Deatils, workshops, application forms avialable here!
Sanyi has been the member of our film selection committee for over 24 years. In his home coungrty, he had been struggling for living as theatre and television director. then finally he decided to try his luck abroad. His family origins from Cluj, avowing themselves Hungarians, who, if we scratch the surface, turns to be like most part of the urban population of the Carpathian basin: the blood of various nations is in their veins. He also found a jewish descendant, so he has been strengthening the Israel nation's colourful population. He couldn't resist to come back to the Long Lasting Mediawave, which name is his merit. His opinion can be read in the details.

Radu Igazság - photographer, animator, film maker, teacher - has been the most important Romanian particiapants of Mediawave Gatherings. He has missed only one of our events so far. Sometimes he was as jury member (like this time) or as a teacher of the photo and film workshop and he has made enormus number of photos.
