Kecera Folk Ensemble at 10th Annual Rusyn Vatra

10th Annual Rusyn Vatra
Kecera Folk Ensemble
September 20, 2014


The 10th Annual Carpatho-Rusyn Vatra was produced by the Cleveland Chapter of the Carpatho-Rusyn Society. The Vatra was held at Carpathian Hall at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Parma Ohio.

The Kecera Folk Ensemble from Jakubany, Slovakia performed at the 10th annual Carpatho-Rusyn Vatra. This tour was the first time performing in the US for Kecera.

They come from the Rusyn village of Jakubany in Northeastern Slovakia which has a rich cultural heritage, including distinctive folklore, music, dance and costume. The villagers of Jakubany developed these traditions based on their relationships with the forests, pastures and mountains that surround them. In fact, "Kecera" is named after a small mountain on the outskirts of their village.

This performance was about the Saint Andrew's Day tradition where young Rusyn women concealed names of young men in the pirohi (pierogi) hoping they would become their husband.
