Even thought the song celebration movement didn’t begin in Baltics, song and dance festivals have become highly celebrated and extremely popular in the region to the point that the tradition of song and dance celebrations in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania has been deservedly inscribed on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. In Lithuania, these festivals, combining different kinds of art, are officially called Song Celebrations.
