Blood, Sweat, and Tears – the American band that visited Romania in 1970

Blood, Sweat and Tears (US band) visited Romania in 1970, which was an impressive event for those times. The project allows us to follow the experiences of the band and of some of the participants at the 1970 concerts.  The results of our research will be used for a documentary production about the visit and concerts of Blood, Sweat, and Tears in Romania and Central and Eastern Europe in 1970.
