Join us for an exciting crossover between the ceilidh format you know and love, and an introduction to Transylvanian dancing and music! This event opens up Roma music, dance and culture for the wider public in a format that is familiar in Scotland. It brings participants right into the heart of Roma culture through dancing together with the help of Roma musicians and a dance caller from Transylvania.
ANDO GLASO was established informally in 2016 to encourage greater understanding and participation in the cultural heritage of the Roma people in Scotland aiming at stimulating and advancing community cohesion that is built on respect for celebrating diverse cultural identities. The organisation was initiated by a dedicated group of volunteers who shared the passion and desire to further encourage links between the Roma and Scottish diverse cultures at several levels including support and understanding through the promotion of arts and music programmes, educational workshops and seminars, conferences and events at local and national level.
Ando Glaso’s mission is not only to strengthen and support roma people; but to work with diverse communities and stakeholders across Scotland to celebrate and promote roma cultural heritage.
