"Vatra Satului" Festival in Teliu



Ever since the Middle Ages there were roads crossing the Carpathians through Buzau Pass for getting access to the Danube. Back in 1931, a section of the road from Tara Barsei, namely Brasov-Intorsura Buzaului, was opened together with Teliu tunnel, 4369 meters long, considered the longest tunnel from the entire Romanian railway network. The fact that a railway artery crossed the Teliu commune influenced the development of the locality around the centre of the village. Moreover, the geographic position very close to Brasov made that the manpower in the commune migrate towards the city.
Cultural identity
The commune laying along the Teliu valley towards the mountain is flanked by hills up to 1000 meter tall. The population includes Romanians, Hungarians and Romani people, each ethnic group preserving its cultural identity. People respect each other, take part in the events organised by the others and even borrow some characteristics from the others. In order to promote the customs and traditions, the Town Hall of Teliu, the Local Council Teliu and the "Suflet Transilvan" Social Cultural Association from Teliu organize local events.
Promoting young talents

This year, from June 6th to 7th 2015, the first edition of the "VATRA SATULUI" Contest Festival of Folk Traditions was organised, aimed at supporting and promoting the most talented authentic young singers and instrumental performers, as well as young artisans. This event is a good meeting occasion for several dance and music folk groups oriented at improving the genuine folk creations of indubitable artistic value.

Value and authenticity

The organizers of the festival assessed the performance (synchronization, theatrical presentation, etc.), the complexity of the dance style and the costumes, the participants? repertoire, in which two authentic traditional songs were included: a doina or a ballad (no backing) and a dancing song; regarding the Folk Crafts section, the original techniques were assessed. The participants presented their works in an exhibition.
