International Festival - 2016

"10th International Festival of Folk Dances & Music"

The 10th anniversary of the "International Festival of Folk Dances & Music" by Cultural Club of Gefira was held from the 25th till the 28th of August 2016 in Gefira, Thessaloniki. 2007-2016, 10 years within which the Festival was created, strengthened and established as a cultural institution, hosting traditional dances and music from 20 countries and more than 1,400 foreign and Greek, dancers and musicians.

In this year's traditional trip we came in contact with the colour of the Latin American tradition by listening to the music of Mariachi from Mexico, we enjoyed the soft, almost like ritual, Korean dances, we had fun with the energetic dances from Turkey and we traveled from one end of Greece to the other. 

Every night, the green surroundings of the the local school, was full with thousands of people, but also music, special sounds, colorful traditional costumes and smiley dancers who celebrate together the greatness of tradition.
