A tribute concert to the late Czech protest singer Karel Kryl was held at the Grand Hall of Prague’s Lucerna on Tuesday night. Artists such as Tomáš Klus, Aneta Langerová, Markéta Irglová and Michal Hrůza performed songs written by Kryl, who was born 70 years ago this Saturday.

He died in 1994 at the age of 49.
