Valašský soubor písní a tanců Bača was founded in May 1945 in Policna – a part of Valasske Mezirici.
The regions of Valasske Mezirici and Roznov pod Radhostem are systematically presented in the Baca band programs.
Today, the core of the Baca band is formed by the youth that grew up in the child folklore band Ovecky.
The repertory of the band consists of the original band programs, but also newly made programs of the Wallachian dances:
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
arose on the occasion of the 60 anniversary of the band foundation in 2005.
