«Wreath of folk traditions» XIII International festival at RUDN.

5-6 December, RUDN hosted a gala concert of the XIII International festival «Wreath of folk traditions» that brought together traditions of different continents on one stage. The program featured an Armenian holiday, Sri-Lankan theatre, a Serbian tradition, an Indian and Bangladeshi festival, an Uzbek wedding and many more.

«In the year of Ecology we researched not only the interaction of man and nature but the ecology of mentality. Today we are overloaded with negative information from mass media, that is why it is so important to remember folk traditions and cultural heritage, since they accumulate the best practices of generations»< said the author of the Festival Olga Vedeneeva.

International festival «Wreath of folk traditions» started in RUDN in 2005. It is aimed at systematic work with historical memory, restoring and researching codes and symbols of ritual cultures, folk traditions and cultural heritage.
