The mission of this organization is to sponsor the collection, preservation, and sharing of world folk music, dance and performance art, with a current focus on the Balkans and the Middle East. Our goal is to bring many styles of world folk music, dance and performance art to people all over the world, regardless of class, race, creed or religion. This cultural exchange is accomplished through workshops, skill shares, concerts, art exhibits, parades, community events, educational activities, and performances. We also accept and distribute donations of musical equipment, costumes and other folk art and educational materials to organizations such as schools, hospitals, and community centers as well as individuals in need.
