"The Circle of Life" Concert Celebrated the Rich Folklore and Music of Belarus
March 14, 2023: to celebrate the rich folklore and music of Belarus, a special concert "The Circle of Life" ("Kalavarot Zhytsya" in Belarusian) was performed in Taganrog on March 12. It was organized by the Ethnic Culture Center of Taganrog's Belarusian Community. The project was funded by Rostov Oblast Government as a socially significant one. It was also supported by Taganrog Local Government and Rostov Oblast Agency for Civic Initiatives Development.


On stage the actors represented such traditional holidays as Christmastide ("Kolyadki"), Call of Spring ("Gukanne vyasny"), Syomukha, St. John the Baptist (Ivan Kupala), Harvesting ("Dazhynki") with songs, dances, and elements of puppet show. Each act was represented with Belarusian folk costumes, reflecting the season and the essence of each holiday. "The Circle of Life" allowed the spectators to better understand the traditional Belarusian culture, its originality and beauty.

Earlier, in August 2022 representatives of Taganrog's Belarusian Community took part in the 7th International Ethnocultural Festival "Call of Polesye", which was held in Lyaskovychi, Gomel Oblast, Belarus.
