Seto culture

For centuries, Seto culture has been an oral culture, where core values have been passed on by singing. Setos are known first and foremost for their distinct singing tradition -- Seto leelo folk songs. Setos are also a dancing nation: almost every village has its own tsura (young man), who knows how to get a party going with his karmoška, or accordion. Seto dances are energetic and emotional, like the Setos themselves. The traditional Seto folk costumes are especially eye-catching, the women's silver jewelry in particular. Traditions are often connected to the Orthodox Church.
