Шагаа биле! Shagaa, Tsagaan Sar, Losar
Primitive Equations (PEQ) continue research of the New Year rites and rituals from around the world. The lunisolar Tibetan calendar, adopted by Mongols and Tuvans marks the beginning of the New Water Dragon Year on February 22, 2012.
On this auspicious occasion you are all cordially invited to mark this day with PEQ. Known as Losar in Tibet, and Tsagaan Sar in Mongolia, Shagaa is a Tuvan New Year - a day when display of hospitality and generosity is a way to welcome renewal and positive change.
Ceremonial and musical blessings will be conducted by our very special guests from the Republic of Tuva (Siberia). PEQ's DJ set will follow with exotic music and videos from around the world. Traditional Tuvan milk tea and rare beverages as well as delicious snacks will cheer your spirit up.
May your thoughts be clean and your future bright!
PEQ's tip: according to a centuries old tradition, greeting the Sun on the New Year's morning can be highly beneficial for you and those around you. Don't miss the sunrise on February 22 at 07:40 CET.
