If each and every Ukrainian were to learn to sing, play and dance traditional Ukrainian music, Ukraine would be a much closely knit nation, and would certanly be a more truly wonderful place. Kryachkivskiy Tabir is a week long music and dance marathon, with such a mission. The camp focuses on learning to sing traditional Poltava style, polyphonic songs; playing traditonal dances on traditional instruments such as the violin, tsymbaly, bassolya, bubon, and sopilka; and dancing traditional Ukrainian dances. The camp is conducted three times a year, during different seasons such as summer, fall, and winter. Each day is divided into five masterclasses from early morning till late at night. Members of the Kryachkivka Village Band, as well as other ethnomusicologists teach the courses. Students range from all ages, from children to adults. Participants stay in traditional village houses and eat home cooked meals made from food locally grown in the village. The village setting has proven to be ideal for such a project. Each season brings changes in landscape, holidays, and seasonal repertoire. The peace, quiet, cleanliness, and wholesomeness of the village makes Kryachkivka the perfect place for such a folk camp.
