ETHNIC FESTIVAL “MUSIC OF OUR HEARTS”
On the 9th of September, the International Ethnic Festival “Music of Our Hearts” was held in Kolomensky Park.
The festival of ethnic and folk music united the artists representing the national colors of Georgia, Uzbekistan, Serbia, Israel and Russia. Such outstanding musicians as Nino Katamadze, Goran Bregovic, Sevara, Pelageya, Yasmin Levy, the Georgian Group “Rustavi” and many others performed songs and melodies which display the historical experience of peoples, cultures and traditions of the countries they represent.
Today the strength of ethnic culture lies in the uniqueness and identity of each nation. Through art the festival recalls the importance of peaceful interaction and cooperation in modern society. One of the main goals of the event is to expand the audience of admirers of ethnic songs, increasing the number of festivals directly in Russia.
