The Wallachian ensemble of songs and dances called "Ovčák" was founded in 1976. For several decades Ovčák has brought Wallachian folk culture and the traditions of our forefathers to the present generation, not only in the Czech republic. The ensemble's sphere of activity is in a village called Hovězí in the "Valašsko-Horní Vsacko" region. Besides this ensemble, there is another one called "Fortáši," which was founded in 1993 by some former members of Ovčák. The main aim of the ensemble is to arrange folk culture to the people of those days, to perpetuate and develop customs and dances, and to represent it to the public.
