The folkloric heritage of the former Soviet Union is vast and ancient. These cultures share a vibrant and colorful bond in the ongoing celebration of their heritage through music, song and dance. Just as the great Hungarian composer Bartok was inspired by his meticulous research and transcription of Romanian and Hungarian folk songs and music, Dance of the Caucasus opens a window into this thriving art form.
