Soubor Bača

Valašský soubor písní a tanců Bača was founded in May 1945 in Policna – a part of Valasske Mezirici.
Milos Karlik, the ethnographer, became one of the most significant founders of the band. The band has excelled in folklore purity and ethnical adherence thanks to his activities since its foundation.

Soubor Bača

The regions of Valasske Mezirici and Roznov pod Radhostem are systematically presented in the Baca band programs.
Single programs are focused on different subjects – from amusing concept of twist, craft, bandit dances to more serious ceremonial theme like eg. wedding songs.
Today, the band has two dance bodies – youth 17 – 20 years and seniors at the age of 45 – 70.
A part of the band is a female song band, which often appeared at CD recording with the local dulcimer music.
In 2002, the band recorded and produced its own CD called "Za pěsničkú do Mezříča".

Today, the core of the Baca band is formed by the youth that grew up in the child folklore band Ovecky.
However, boys and girls from the families that are getting acquainted with the folklore world gradually are becoming an integral part of the band.

The repertory of the band consists of the original band programs, but also newly made programs of the Wallachian dances:

U muziky- traditional dance program of songs ans dances from the Valasske Mezirici region
Mlynářské- dance program inspired by flour mill melodies and millwheel´s move
Vojenské- program based on recruitment
Za horama,za dolama- dance program based on songs about gypsies
Májové točené- program of twist – typical twist pair dances from Wallachia

The band takes part in folklore festivals and parades in the Czech republic and abroad, and different cultural events in Valasske Mezirici and its vicinity.

Soubor se účastní folklorních festivalů a přehlídek v ČR i zahraničí, ve Valašském Meziříčí a okolí také různých kulturních a společenských akcí.

The senior body of the Baca band

Soubor Bača

arose on the occasion of the 60 anniversary of the band foundation in 2005.
Today, the band has 20 permanent members – dancers who are associated with love to a Wallachian song and who went through the Wallachian band of songs and dances Baca in different periods.
They meet regularly and „brush up on“ so-called old programs (Mezříčské trojky, Šátečkový) and also learn new programs hard - Formanské točené, Zatáčaný.

Nowadays, the oldest members of the senior dance body are over 80 years old. Nevertheless, their advanced age doesn´t discourage them from participation in all important events of the band.
