Madison World Music Festival

Presented By Wisconsin Union Theater

Oyme | Workshop: 3pm | Concert 7:45pm

Having performed at the largest international festivals - WOMAD, Wild Mint, Creation of the World and Movement, Oyme takes the Erzya and Moksha musical folklore traditions as a basis, while experimenting with contemporary musical styles. They recreates the traditions and customs of the Mordovians, meshed with pop fusion, percussion,  progressive electronic sound, or a symbiosis of folklore tradition with the rock and classical drum kit.

On the basis of their own ethnographic expeditions, the members of OYME reconstruct ancient rituals and national holidays, which are often interactive with the audience.

Workshop: Traditional Mordovian Dance
