It featured 12 performances of Israel’s folk dancing troupe Hora Shemesh and the Lao Cai troupe of folk music.

Established 25 years ago, Hora Shemesh, a large dance troupe, is renowned for their colourful costumes and uplifting music. Through their art, they paint an interesting picture of Israeli culture and life.

The main themes in the troupe’s performances are family love, characters of the Bible and humour.
