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. After the 1968 Soviet-led invasion of Czechoslovakia the anti-communist musician emigrated to West Germany, from where he broadcast to his compatriots on Radio Free Europe. He died in 1994 at the age of 49.
