In memoriam: Albert Siebelink

On September 30, 2015 our friend and colleague Albert Siebelink has passed away.
Albert never stopped being actively involved and always remained active with his strength, creativity, and great commitment, even during his illness that lasted for almost four years.
Through his large network and his love for music, arts, and culture Albert produced many beautiful projects, such as the Requiem for Auschwitz, the Folk Festival, the Accordion Festival, Festival Mundial, the Bosvreugd Variety Festival, the Cimbalom Festival, numerous concerts and theatre productions, and of course his own orchestra 'de Coup'. 

Albert was the founder of the International Gipsy Festival that celebrated its 19th edition this year. Through this festival he showed the world his love for the arts and culture of the Roma and Sinti. With every edition he presented unexpectedly brilliant artists, continuously pleasing a large audience.
With all his projects Albert brought colour, light and joy into his own life and into the lives of many people around him. 

The European Forum of Worldwide Music Festivals and all his international colleagues will miss him terribly.

    I’m feeling guilty about your friend Albert Siebelink, who just passed away by the end of the week. May you all get the patience about that thing? And, now he can only stay with you in your memories. So, try to focus on other things.
