The folk group UZSGYI plays traditional folk music of ’csángó’ people who live in ’Moldva’ in Romania.
’Csángó’ people are relatives of Hungarians and most of them still speak the native language.
All the ’csángó’ melodies have their own specific dances. These dances are very popular in Hungary, because they are very easy to join and learn.
Most of them are circle dances which helps the people to quickly become a small community. Some of the dances need the audience to form pairs, the rhythm and the feeling of these dances are close to balkan music.
A dancer will lead the workshop of Uzsgyi and the band will play the background music live on stage with traditional instuments from Moldva.
The most popular dances from Moldva what Uzsgyi will teach on Venezia Balla Festival: Kezes, Pálmáska, Drumul Drakuluj, Hojna, Kecskés, Bulgarjászka, Botosánka, Öves, Szerba Sztudencilor, Tűz lángja and more…
