The Roma, whom most of us know a the Gypsys, often live under difficult conditions in the Central Europea
n countries such as Slovakia, Czech Republic and Hungary. they often live in small villages with little infrastructure, hygiene and possiblity for good education. It is often a vicious cycle, a trap that the yo
ung Roma can hardly get out of out. In a project with Viliam Rozboril of the TV series “Modre z Bena” translated “the Blue of the Heaven” Celeste visited the Roma village, and visitng specifically a 15 year old girl Anna, who lives with her grandmother. Anna has a beautiful voice and it is her dream to be able to sing. The fifteen year old and her grandparents all liveand sleep in one place and she wished she had a little bit of privacy. Anna is a Celeste Buckingham fan. Celeste visits Anna’s village, stays at her 1 room place, cooks dinner for them and spends the night with them as well. next, Celeste and her band take Anna out during the day while a team comes to her “house” and does some restructuring and creates a little privacy and estatic in their living area. Anna has now her own little room with some new “teenage furniture”. At the same time, they organize a secret concert inthe next town where Anna is the featured guest. She arrives there not knowing that she is the performer. Anna’s dream of singing for a public comes true and the audience gives her a wonderful ovation. But it things get even better for Anna (Anicka – the endearment form). She teaches Celeste a Roma song and they both perform on one of the most popular reality shows and Anna’s story becomes known. Anna then received a scholarship to study at the conservatorium and has since become a known performer. This is a video of their first performance on TV: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_RBTMGdU4w
