LES COLPORTEURS (Pierre-de-Bresse, FRANCE)
coordinator: Denis Lamard
music manager: Dominique Trompille
Les Colporteurs project was created in 2011, as a merger of two groups: Fromages et Desserts, which performs folk music of central France, and the amateur dance ensemble La Grange Rouge. The group’s aim is to encourage people to dance in the streets and to teach them traditional French dances. During the performance at this year’s Podlasie Octave of Cultures Les Colporteurs will present mazurkas, waltzes, bourrées, and chapeloises.
