From the rich color and deep symbolism of the delicate “pysanka” (Ukrainian Easter Egg) to the thunderous rhythm and power of “HOPAK” – the world’s most exciting ethnic dance – and every brilliant “Kolomiyka” (polka) and soulful folk song in between, experience the 27th Annual Ukrainian Folk Festival.
