Alongside performances of traditional brass and dulcimer music, the king for May’s Ride of the Kings was presented at a ball in Vlčnov in the southeast of the Czech Republic at the weekend. Josef Pavelčík (centre) will serve as this year’s king in a folk tradition that has only been preserved in a handful of villages in the Slovácko and Haná regions.
