During lock-down, on International Roma Day (April 8, 2020), ERIAC published a call for Roma musicians, and the future generations of Roma musical talents to stay at home, while enrolling for the GRAND PRIZE of the online ERIAC ROMA FAMILY MUSIC COMPETITION!
ERIAC received over 160 videos from 365 musicians from 20 countries and engaged over a million Facebook viewers between April 8 and May 16, 2020.
The finalists of the competition – the top 15 videos – were selected based on popularity and not the number of views. 15 videos with the highest total number of Likes and Shares were sent to the international jury for their review. The jury members – Dr. Carol Silverman, Mónika Lakatos, Miquel Àngel Vargar, Riccardo Sahiti and David Pena “Dorantes” – selected the winners through anonymous voting online.
