Louky – Bohemia

Dr. František Bonuš of the University of Prague taught this dance to Richard Duree in 1992.  The haunting folk music is supposedly from the 15th century, as are the dance steps.  I can find no examples of this being danced in the Czech Republic today.  Also, the instrumentation sounds more modern, and the tight correspondence between recording and dance figures leads me to conclude this is a modern 2nd Generation choreography to an ancient folk song.
