CANCELLED - Csángó Táncház - Transylvanian Ceilidh

Sun 17 June 2018

Following the fire on Friday night, CCA will be closed all day Saturday 16 June, Sunday 17 June and Monday 18 June. Our thoughts are with our friends and neighbours at Glasgow School of Art and O2 ABC, and the incredible fire service. People who have bought tickets for this event will be reimbursed by the organisers via Brown Paper Tickets.

Csángó Táncház & Romane Chiernia (Transylvanian Ceilidh)

The evening will be an exciting mixture of Gypsy music and Transylvanian dances. A family of outstanding Roma musicians, Romane Chiernia will perform fiery Gypsy music from Poland to start off the evening followed by an exotic ceilidh of Transylvanian dances from the Csángó tradition.

These ancient dances are very unique as unlike most of the dances from Transylvania, Csángó dances are danced in bigger groups and easy to join, similar to the Breton Fest Noz traditions. The style of music is also an interesting mixture of Hungarian, Gypsy, Romanian, etc styles.

Dance callers from the Glasgow University's Hungarian dance group will help you to quickly learn the steps and live music will be provided by local Roma musicians.

Join us to experience how ceilidhs are done in Transylvania!
