Go off the grid

...
The song and dance routine

They say a country’s culture is its people and the way they celebrate togetherness. Join in the celebration where wine, food, and music take all your senses on a whirlwind journey. These convivial gatherings headed by the ‘Tamada’ (the toastmaster) sometimes last from early afternoon well into the early mornings and are accompanied by polyphonic singing and/or European style guitar songs! The only requirement is a gathering of two or more, as much wine as is on hand and the willingness to drink until it’s gone.
