New Year 2015 has began for the Association of Tatars of Montreal with a new tradition – Chak chak bayrame.
All the participants of the event have agreed that the best way to warm up a long Canadian winter – to cook chak-chak, come together, make the tea, sing songs and begin to spin in dance.
Scheduled four hours passed unnoticed: a competition for best chak-chak, games, dancing, singing folk songs and performance of children with a mini-performance in the Tatar language.
What have we remembered most?
– Incendiary enthusiasm by the evening hostess Svetlana Dogadkina. Songs, jokes and efficient organization she united the participants and triggered the dynamics of the holiday.
– Best chak-chak, baked by Liana Hamadiyarova. Thanks to the persons that participated in the contest, and congratulations Liana!
– Singing and dancing by the participants of the festival. The atmosphere of music, native melodies and movements allows us to feel at home even far away from home.
