Wallachian ensemble KOSISKA
We are trying to preserve Wallachian customs and traditions in our village.
A folklore ensemble that has been established only recently. In 2014, first the children's component Kosáček was founded, not long afterwards the men Kosaka started to meet.
Children aged 4 and up who sing and dance Wallachian songs and dances with the aim of preserving and reviving forgotten traditions. They perform mainly at village events and accompany their bands with "A Year in the Village".
Among the traditional events is the spring hoisting of the Marena and the associated welcoming of spring, at the end of May the children are presented at the Gulášový král and the spring march, which is organized annually by the Municipality of Ratiboř. The children perform a band with different themes. In autumn, they sing and dance for the joy of the sick and the elderly, they also took part in the Children's Wallachian Ball. At the beginning of Advent, they light the Christmas tree with a Christmas-themed band and between the holidays they go caroling together with the Kosáky guys - Šťastikovat.
