Episode details

In today's episode, we'll be finding out more about folklore, and in particular, traditional dancing.

Back in 2019, I became aware of a young lady from South Holland, who had been dancing with a folklore ensemble in the nearby city of Banja Luka.

She was at that time starting to make a film about Bosnian folk dancing, because she felt that these traditions might be starting to disappear, and she wanted to preserve that experience for future generations.

So in the COVID world of early 2021, I have caught up with Efie Derksen to find out more.
