Folklore

  Folklore is millennnia old. It is the result of annonymous creators, it is passed verbaly, enriched by the aport of the community. Folklore is an identity card that can differentiate and customize countries and people.
 „Land of synthesis“ as Nicolae Iorga said. Dobrogea proves this by the folk heritage it posseses. To the local creation was added the one from romanians who came from over the Danube. Influences were allways accepted and overlapped the ancient ones, influencing each other.
  The local costume developed with history, being the expression of traditions over the centuries.
 The old costum is characterized by the contrast between the white shirt and the bright colors of the skirts. The shirt is white and has soft stitchings at the shoulders, sleeves and chest. The skirts have large geometric motifs. The specific note on the male costume is given by the illicit embellished with chenille.
 Despite the impression of diversity, the Dobrogea port has all the essential aspects of the romanian port everywhere ? the raw material used, cuts, decoration and color.

Shepherd and fishing song preserve in their structure the oldest romanian layers.
 Very popular in the middle and south of Dobrogea is a game called „geamparaua“ in which the oriental influence is most prominent.
 The tatar ensemble „Nurbatlar“ that operates in the Murfatlar City Hall, has represented the town in local TV shows, in the media, festivals and competitions. We note the „International turkish - tatar festival of song, port and dance“.
 In general high A.V. RADULESCU young children are initiated to follow „Murfatlar juniors“.
   Today we live in a society with rapid change and modernization. We tend to forget about the traditions, customs, and values inherited from generation to generation.
   Therefore, based on the idea that traditon is a bridge between the past and present, we want to revive the interest of the young from the community for the unsuspected charms of folk heritage.
