HUDAKI VILLAGE BAND
The most amusing village band in the world!
In Maramures, a mountainous area of southwestern Ukraine near the border with Romania and Hungary, village musicians are called hudakis. The nine hudakis of the "Pasaulis Skamba" festival are masters of powerful and archaic music: slavic vocal tradition, Romanian melodies, Jewish rhythms and Romani temperament converge at the crossroads of cultures.
The members of Hudaki Village Band don't need to pretend - they are real village musicians who have played at Sziget, Fusion, Rudolstadt, Bardentreffen and other festivals.
Well-known Lithuanian troubadours Rakija Klezmer Orkestar will warm up.

"DANCING TAICHI" MOVEMENT WORKSHOP WITH MIA HSIEH
The event is in English.
Duration: 90 min.
Join international presenter and performer Mia Hsieh (A Moving Sound) for her unique blend of Tai Chi warm up, meditative movement and improvised dance. Enjoy this rare opportunity to explore simple dance and movement using concepts such as contraction (Yin) and expansion (Yang), spiralling, rotating, loosening and softening.
You will be guided to explore your own internal flow of Chi (life energy) in a very subtle way. The practice will awaken and unblock the body and cultivate an experience of moving your energy freely into space and interacting with others. This is a joyful opportunity to listen and observe the body’s inner voice, and feel the wonderful balance of the inward and outward flow of chi. This format is perfect for all levels of movement ability.
