Despite all this, they were attracted and kept watching the show, they came and listened to our music. I chose a recital binding together musical structures of the Asian culture,’ the protagonist confessed for the Romanian pavilion’s newsroom.

In a globalized world where all things begin looking alike, Romania, today, has offered us something quite different. Such shows represent genuine values, I was watching the show fully fascinated,’ Rogowski said. Grigore Lese’s performance contributed to the affirmation of the Romanian identity at the Shanghai EXPO 2010, mirroring the Romanian people’s creativity and bringing together several cultures whose universal denominator is the folklore’s genuiness."
