Joci Pápai (Hungary) shows his hometown Tata

Posted 20 March, 2017, 16:00

Joci Papai, Hungary’s artist at the 62nd Eurovision Song Contest was born to a gypsy family in Tata, a town cca. 50 kilometers from the capital, Budapest. This is the place where he still lives and where he finds his peace of mind – either at playing football with kids on the street, meditating and praying, or just having a good time with his wife and two beautiful children’.
