Last weekend Bucharest people were invited to take part in the 4th edition of “Music and Traditions in Cismigiu” festival. It’s a festival which attracts more and more people every year.
Full of colour, with lots of village artisans presenting their handmade items, traditional music and dances performed by well-known folk music singers, Romanian, minorities and international folk dancers.

Very nice photos! Is there a large Italian minority in Romania?
The dancers look very nice in their traditional dresses.
@Liz – no, the Italian minority is not large. But they have managed to establish an asociation in 1990 (very active especially at cultural level)
@Sanjar – they look nice indeed ; but you might like the music too !
