Bebek folklore group

The folklore group Bebek z Proskovic comes from the Eastern part of the Czech Republic. The region called Lassko is situated near Ostrava town and the borders with Slovakia. We have been performing since 2001. We have a group of small children as well as a group of adult musicians and dancers. Our group is not big but our enthusiasm for folklore has no limits. We got the chance to represent our songs and dances at many folklore festivals and other events in the Czech Rebuplic and we were also invited to perform in Belgium, Hungary and Poland. Since 2005 we have been rehearsing in an old rented mill which is a beatiful place with fantastic atmosphere to organize all our projects and events.

In 2006 we started to co-operate with a folklore group from Slovakia and in 2008 with a band from Hungary. In 2009 we organized one-week Summer Visegrad folkore workshop camp and festival where folklore group members from 4 Visegrad countries were learning and teaching each other their songs and dances. We hope this project to become tradition in our village. We also co-operate with disabled people who come to the mill to learn our songs and dances. We are happy to meet new folklore enthusiasts and to make friends from all over the world to share our experience and passion for folklore. Should you be interested, please, do not hesitate to contact us.
