  • Main programme



In the European Capital of Culture year, history will be made on the tiny singing stage of Pala village. On 2 June 2024, the first Kodavere song festival (Kodavere laalupido) will take place here, with the aim of preserving indigenous languages.

The event was sparked by a local initiative: the people of Kodavere parish have decided to lift the lid on their treasure chest just a little, so that their secret language – Kodavere kiäl – may be heard. Kodavere laalopido is a public festival open to everyone. Organised by the Kodavere Heritage Centre, all the songs are sung in the Kodavere dialect.

“Tule kõhale, laala kuasa ja õle ajaluulise pido sünni juuren!“ (Come and sing along, and witness the birth of an historic festival!).
