International Ethno Seminar at the Grammar School of Rudnik - Serbia (from 1 to 11 August 2008).

“And songs, my child, songs and music make a nation. Every bird sings in its own voice. Every nation has its own voice, too and its own song by which it is known. When you meet a stranger never ask him who he is and where he comes from. Let him sing or play to you and all will be clear to you…” This is said in “The Legacy of Songs and Plays” by Stefan Nemanja.

In these days the Grammar School of Rudnik is hosting a seminar for folk and ethnic traditions in which people from France, Germany, Israel, Japan, Republika Srpska, and Belgium participate. The Japanese patricipant arrived with a direct flight from Tokio to Belgrade.
