Despite enviable accomplishments – Lavička was a pioneer of Romany TV and radio broadcasting, an activist with an NGO on behalf of the Roma and, most famously, a master violinist whose popular Romany hip-hop group Gipsy.cz played Glastonbury in 2007 – he is still trying to get things right. A more general picture of the life of Gypsies in the Czech society is gradually pieced together with events in his personal and professional life, forming its background.
