  1. We were very lucky to come across the A Cappella festival in Buda on 13/6 and really enjoyed it. We were unable to understand what was being said but are very interested to hear more by the last group that sang. It was a local group (judging by the applause) of 5 men who sang contemporary and pop music. We didn’t hear what their name was.

    Thanks for a brilliant evening.
