2. Donya Children’s Research Institute, Iran

 

IMG_20180601_155743.jpgFootball is really popular in Iran these days, specially among youngsters. The  boys from my group are no exceptions. Except from one, all of them love it. So we thought we could work on  some chants and songs that Iranian football spectators sing when they are in the stadium. We knew the songs that football spectators sing and the instruments which they use are different region by region. Also we knew that some of this songs and their melodies root into their tradition. Moreover, we could use the potential of questioning-answering of these songs which is popular among football leaders and the spectators.

For learning the songs we went to a stadium to watch a football match in Tehran, travelled to another city in north of Iran -Babol- to watch another match, contacted football spectators leaders, and searched the internet. At the end we took two regions to work on; Mazandaran (located in north of Iran) and Khouzestan (located in south west of Iran).

Some of these songs came by a traditional dance themselves and some didn’t. So we decided to put a dance related to a region just after singing a song or chant from that region.

We also added the Viking Clapping which is popular among all the football spectators around the world to the beginning of our show.

Witajcie kochani mieszkańcy Żydaczowa!

Przyjechaliśmy do Was z południowo- zachodniej części Polski z malutkiej wioski Bystrzycy Górnej należącej do Gminy Świdnica. Gdy dowiedzieliśmy się o programie Brave Kids, podczas którego dzieci uczą się od dzieci, chcieliśmy bardzo w nim uczestniczyć.
Zadzwoniliśmy i usłyszeliśmy, ze dzieci z naszego wiejskiego zespołu mogą wziąć udział i spotkać się z dziećmi z różnych części świata i doświadczyć tego bezpośrednio. Radości nie było końca.
Dzięki zaangażowaniu rodziców, wsparciu Gminnego Ośrodka Kultury Sportu i Rekreacji w Świdnicy oraz naszym “Dobrodziejom” jesteśmy tu i teraz za co bardzo wszystkim dziękujemy!

Podczas naszego krótkiego występu chcielibyśmy bardzo przybliżyć Wam nasz Region Dolny Śląsk gdzie jest tygiel kulturowy z wszystkich części Polski.
W swoim programie wykorzystaliśmy odkryte na nowo tańce i pieśni dolnośląskie oraz staraliśmy się reaktywować tradycyjny lokalny ubiór pochodzący z Jedliny Zdrój. Zespół ” Bystrzyca” zaprezentuje się więc w programie dolnośląskim pt. Gra muzyka u Kurzawy. tańczy młody, śpiewa stary oraz wykona taniec z tkaninami tworząc na koniec flagę Polski.
Życzymy miłego odbioru.
Zespół Pieśni i Tańca “Bystrzyca”.
