Barrel organ players from the Czech Republic and abroad have gathered in Prague to attend a one-day festival called Flašinet žije! (The barrel organ is alive) organised by the National Museum. Concerts can be heard on Tuesday on Prague’s Kampa Island, in the St Nicholas Church on the Old Town Square and at the Czech Museum of Music. The event dedicated to the historical mechanical instrument was launched last year and is the first in a series of international barrel organist gatherings that will take place between now and the end of the month in Liberec, Brno and Pekařovice in the Jeseníky Mountains.
