We started with the World Village Festival in Helsinki, and we are now heading to the Kaustinen festival where we are doing there one of our monthly “Folk Dance Events with Live Music” and a live concert. The topic is Galician + Bulgarian. Both these cultures embraced the bagpipe strongly into their music. But of course there is far more into it than just the pipes. We are mixing these two into an evening workshop. As usual, everyone is invited to dance and to play the music with us on the 13th July, at 20:00.
At the same festival, Kaustinen, we are organizing our first ever promoted live concert. We invited for this, Davide Salvado from Galicia to play at 14:00, of the 14th of July.
After Kaustinen we will be also present at the Etnosalo festival, a young but thriving festival. There, we will continue with african motives, as we did at the World Village festival. And just fresh out of the oven, we just confirmed our presence at the EtnoSoi festival, the Nr. 1 folk festival of Helsinki, turning 30 this year (Kaustinen is 20 years older ;-))
Stay tuned for more news! 🙂
