Azerbaijani Young European Ambassadors treated locals in Baku to a flash mob where they performed a mix of the traditional “Yalli” — Azerbaijan’s most ancient collective dance — and modern dance. The idea was to showcase that modern young people can combine both national heritage and a modern European mindset whilst celebrating the achievements of 10 years of the Eastern Partnership.
The flash mob took place in the heart of Baku, in front of the symbol of the country — Maiden Tower. Cheerful dancing and colourful national costumes attracted the attention of locals passing by, and YEAs engaged with them by sharing handouts and information about the ‘Young European Neighbours’ network, EaP 10th Anniversary celebrations and EU initiatives.
