Contemporary Slovakian composer Ilja Zelenka he inspired himself here by two harvest time songs from Čičmany and Dolné Vadičovo. From the spirit of Slovakian folklore also Šmok´s choreography comes out. It is some kind of tribute to modern ballet, to the one from basic inspiration sources – to folks dance.
