WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Midwinter Night, a multidisciplinary event by Yara Arts Group, features traditional winter songs and musicians from the Carpathian Mountains of Eastern Europe. The Koliada songs are part of a winter ritual that now coincides with Christmas, but is much older in origin, traditions and symbolism. Sections of a nativity puppet play from the 18th century are also performed, presenting both traditional and solstice songs from around the world.
