In the past few decades, traditional Eastern European and Central Asian folk music and dance have enjoyed a renaissance within the former Soviet and Eastern Bloc states and across the diaspora. Celebrate this resurgence with a rich afternoon of performances by the Cheres Folk Orchestra, representing the Carpathian region of Western Ukraine; the acrobatic Georgian music and dance troupe Dancing Crane; the “Queen of Tajik Dance” Malika Kalontarova; and Albanian vocal star Merita Halili, with an orchestra led by the Republic of Kosova’s Raif Hyseni.
