Lively, engaging, and absolutely wonderful!
Folikadi was absolutely wonderful! They were professional and friendly and did a great job of addressing any special circumstances that arose. We booked them to be part of our Winter Arts and Culture festival at our elementary school and they were truly a highlight of our event! They were able to bring a fantastic troupe of dancers with them, which only added to the energetic and engaging performance that our students, faculty, and parents are still raving about! I would hire them again in a heartbeat and highly recommend them to anyone!
Ayden was an absolute delight! He was very prompt and professional as well as being flexible and accommodating to our unique set of circumstances. We asked him to perform for our Winter Arts and Culture festival at our elementary school, and did a wonderful job of explaining some of the nuances celtic music and how it connected to Celtic culture. His music sounded beautiful and was engaging to the wide ranging age of our audience, both children and adults alike. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
