The Nyírség Folk Dance Ensemble (Nyírség Táncegyüttes) is one of the best amateur folk dance groups in Hungary, promoting the folk dance and music of Hungary and the Carpathian Basin both at home and internationally. As this year Hungary is celebrating the life and achievements of the famous composer and folk song collector Zoltán Kodály, the group will perform amongst others a classic Kodály-piece, the so-called Kállai Double Dance (“Kállai-kettős”). The performance organized by the Hungarian Cultural Institute in Tallinn is also a tribute to the Estonian centenary celebrations and music that played a prominent role in Estonia’s history.
