‘Tartu Folk-off 2020’ is a virtual web show bringing to the audience a fierce folk battle. Facing off are groups that have previously participated in Tartu Youth Folklore Festival – groups from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Finland.
Groups give each other challenges: they need to learn a song and a dance from their opponent’s country. The whole activity is coordinated and moderated by the young people of folklore club Maatasa who will not get challenges from others, but nonetheless are ready to challenge themselves. The audience has a chance to choose their favourite.
The web show is an alternative to the Tartu Youth Folklore Festival that was supposed to happen from the 13th to the 15th November. The show is happening live during the time the main concert was supposed to happen – on 14th of November, 18.00-21.00.
