Jánošíček The folklore ensemble

Brno – Czech Republic

Jánošiček, the folklore ensemble, was founded in Brno in 1988. The members of the group – children and young people between 5 and 35 years – involve, all together, nearly 90 people. It works in three components from a preparatory school for the youngest, through children and youth, to adults. One peculiarity of the ensemble is its program. In spite of its sphere of activities being in the center of South Moravia, the ensemble produces lively Slovak folklore in rich dance choreographies.

The programme assortment is very versatile and involves the games, popular customs and coherent blocks up to self-contained dances. The group’s collective also involves two bands for not only accompanying the dancers and singers during their performances, but also enriching the programme with agreeable Moravian melodies and songs presented apart. The origin of the dulcimer music of the Jánošíček Folklore Ensemble has been closely linked with the ensemble’s origins. Just as in the dancing section of the ensemble, also here many generations has taken their turns. Members of the music section have been devoted to folklore since their early childhood and have tried, through the folk-song, to share love, strength and wisdom that have strong roots deep in the folk-song.

Since its establishment, the ensemble has done a number of successful performances on the domestic scene and has represented the city of Brno at many international festivals around the world.

In 2012 the ensemble received the award for a high-quality ensemble „Label Fetes de la Vigne de Dijon“.

The enthusiasm and temperament that the young people put in the display of their programme will surely find the way to your hearts, will entertain you and will give you an unforgettable cultural experience.
