KalynDar Calls Forth Spring in Song

Kosa’s Festival Revives the True Meaning of a Festival.

KalynDar will be taking part in Kosa Kolektiv’s spring celebration, Haivky. We will be drawing on the ancient spring songs from regions across Ukraine, calling forth the warmer weather and the chance for renewal after the long cold winter. The following describes the uniqueness of this Toronto event and the full article can be located on MusiCampTO.com.
When one mentions “festival” in this part of the world, people immediately think of it in commercial terms – big stages, sound systems, visiting artists, official schedules, ticket sales, wrist bands, CDs and many other forms of merchandising – from specialty foods to cultural wares. But this is not the sort of festival Kosa Kolektiv will be bringing to Trinity Bellwoods Park this Sunday. There will be no stage. No sound systems. No vendors trying to sell you food. No money will ever cross hands. In contrast, this is a true community celebration to welcome Spring back to Toronto! Read more from the original post about how Haivky will play out in Trinity Bellwoods park.

 
There will be songs, children’s games, balfolk dancing, and more. Bring your family, friends and picnic baskets!
