Serbian Folklore Ensemble "KOLO"
Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
Serbian Folklore Ensemble "KOLO" (KOLO) is a young adult ensemble of dancers and musicians who are passionate about traditional Serbian folklore. KOLOs objective is to instill and perpetuate in its members a true spirit of Serbian folklore, language, song, music, dance and community.
The Ensemble's primary goal has always been to present Serbian folklore in as original a form as possible within the context of the overall Canadian cultural mosaic. It prides itself on the perpetuation of authentic choreography and costume design, and more importantly, on the preservation of its ethnic heritage, flourishing as an essential part of the North American, and specifically City of Hamilton’s, cultural arts scene for the last five decades. KOLO is a recreational, non-political, not-for-profit organization that has been able to thrive due to the support of the surrounding Hamilton community.
