Workshop program:­
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…
