Wallachian ensemble KOSISKA
We are trying to preserve Wallachian customs and traditions in our village.
The folklore ensemble was founded in 2014, when first the children's component Kosáček was established, shortly after which the men Kosáček began to meet. We try to preserve Wallachian customs and traditions in our village.
Children aged 4 and up sing and dance Wallachian songs with the aim of preserving and reviving forgotten traditions. The Kosacs perform at village events and accompany the "Year in the countryside" with their bands. Traditional events include the spring hoisting of the Marena and the associated welcoming of spring, and at the end of May the children perform at the Gulášový král (Goulash King), where they perform a band with various themes. In autumn, they sing and dance for the benefit of the sick and the elderly, and they also take 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 Scythe Men - the Shrovetide.
Rehearsals are regularly every Wednesday in the hall of the Community Centre in Ratiboř.
- Preschool children 16.00-16.45
- Children of school age 17.00-18.00
