Since it was organized in 1936, NALMES, the State Academic Ensemble of Folk Dance of Adyghea, (from the North Caucasus) has displayed the chorographical art of the Adygean people in concert halls all over the world. The ensemble’s dances tell the stories about everyday Circassian life such as courtship, preparing for war, and the harvest, while at the same time preserving ancient Circassian history. Currently, NALMES consists of 75 performers, including musicians, vocalists, and dancers. The average age of the artists is 20 years old.
Nalmes is the diplomat of the Russian competition of the professional groups, the owner of the medal Glory of Adyghea, and the winner of the international competitions of folkdance in Turkey, Jordan, Syria, The United Arab Emirates, Belgium, France, and Germany.
