Lyrical folk song festival «Doina» was held in Moldova for the first time

Folklorist Andrei Tamazlâcaru said at a press conference, Moldavian lyric folk song - doina - was on the verge of extinction as a genre.

About 80 artists performed at the festival – both amateurs and professionals. Selection stage took place October 25-26, and the competition – on October 27.

In 2009 the doina was included in UNESCO’s List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
