Kupalle op de Noordzee

Fri 30 June

Presented by MARA

Join a commemoration of the inaugural day of Kupala with a heartfelt tribute to the political prisoners in Belarus. The event begins with a traditional dinner that will transport your taste buds to the heart of Belarusian culture, followed by a concert.

The musical and dance performance “I am here” is brought to life through an array of photographs and narratives depicting the condition of political prisoners. This poignant performance culminates in a grand closing act. The concert program not only showcases revered compositions from the world’s classical repertoire but also introduces the audience to the rich tapestry of Belarusian folk and contemporary music, complemented by the enchanting melodies of the traditional cymbal instrument. The unique fusion of vocals, vibraphone, and cymbals mesmerizes the listeners, creating captivating harmonies.

To immerse oneself further in the Belarusian experience, a pre-concert dinner is arranged, featuring an exquisite selection of national Belarusian cuisine. This culinary journey offers a temporary escape to Belarus, allowing guests to savor its flavors and indulge in its gastronomic delights.
