WAC and ANO "Alashara" launched a new project about the intangible heritage of the Abkhaz-Abaza people "Amazara".
The World Abaza Congress and the international association "Alashara" have launched a project on the intangible heritage of the Abkhaz-Abaza people "Amazara" (means treasure, treasury in Abkhazian - ed.). The author of the idea is the Chairman of the Supreme Council of the WAC Mussa Ekzekov.
Dance was chosen as the first heritage object of the "Amazara" project. The WAC team, together with a group of professionals, filmed the Abkhazian national dance, giving it a modern meaning. The video will be published on the website of the WAC information portal, and also distributed on well-known world websites. Thus, anyone can see the Abkhazian national dance.
To implement this idea, directors, videographers, dancers and musicians, well-known in Abkhazia, have united into one team on a voluntary basis.
The project of the World Abaza Congress and the international association "Alashara" on the intangible heritage of the Abaza people "Amazara" will continue with videos dedicated to folk songs, national literature and language, folk crafts and ancient traditions. The videos will be shot in Abkhazia and in Karachay-Cherkessia.
