Festival „Emerald Island“, Tasos, Grčka
The impression that "Talija", which has already toured twice Cleveland, Ohio, is unforgettable. Absolutely entire audience, which consisted of Serbs born in America, those who have come recently, as the Americans themselves, was fascinated by artists performance, dynamics and harmony, which "Talija" has shown.
This Folklore Ensemble is the best ambassador that is necessary not only to represent Serbia in front of strangers, but also to inspire and maintain a close relationship between scattered Serbs and their homeland. Wholeheartedly supporting Folklore Ensemble "Talija" in their hard work and sacrifice, we want them to continue to inspire everyone with song and dance, and preserve our beautiful folklore traditions and culture.
