Efsane Crimean Tatar Ensemble, based at the Crimean Tatar Cultural Center in Brooklyn, is a 40 member ensemble that preserves and promotes the cultural heritage and history of Crimean Tatars, the indigenous people of the Crimean peninsula. Their vibrant music and dance traditions have substantial similarities with other cultures around the Black Sea, but with a special flair that captivates the ear and the eye: uniquely accented 7/8 dance rhythms and precise, athletic dance steps that bring energy to any performance. As the only US-based group performing these dance traditions, they have danced in a variety of venues including Lincoln Center, the Lowell Folk Festival in Massachusetts, and the Ukrainian Tryrub Festival in Philadelphia. Presented in collaboration with the Center for Traditional Music and Dance.
