Ukrainian vocal ensemble “Vodograj”
In 1997, the Rezekne Ukrainian association “Vodograj” was founded, and since the Ukrainian people are a singing nation, in 1999 an ensemble with an identical name – “Vodograj” was formed. The leader of the team is currently Tatjana Orlova.
The ensemble has three types of national costumes. It has participated in city, regional and all-Latvian shows-competitions, as well as Rezekne city and district festival events (in Strūžāni, Dricāni, Feimaņi, Malta). For the fifth year in a row, it is participating in the celebrations in honor of Ukraine’s Independence Day in Riga. Participated in the festival “Baltic Trembita” (Estonia, Tallinn), where it received a diploma.
Participated in Christmas and Maslenitsa events in Rezekne, Riga, Jēkabpils, Vangaži and Preiļi, as well as in the anniversary concert of Ukrainian writer Taras Shevchenko.
It should be mentioned that every time during its performance the ensemble treats everyone present with delicious Ukrainian food.
