This was a first-rate performance with both the instrumentation and the dancing being superb. There was incredible variety with dances from different areas of mostly the Balkan pennisula. The male dancers were very athletic and performed entertaining feats that were in the "impossible" realm. The female dancers were very graceful. The small on-stange orchestra was composed of extremely talented musicians who were obviously having a lot of fun.
During the past 40 years, Frula has given more than 7,000 performances throughout the world. In the United States alone, Frula has toured 27 times, appearing in the best halls, such as Carnegie Hall in New York and the Kennedy Center in Washington. Presenting a rich and colorful program, Frula performs folk dances from all regions of the former Yugoslavia, as well as from Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and Albania. Breathtaking technique transforms folk into a theatrical show. Dazzling authentic costumes, athletic prowess, cultural pride, and the performers' inner joy, combined with musicians, dancers, singers, and technical expertise, proving that Frula is an exciting perpetuator of cultural heritage.
