Description

04 – 12 November 2018 – Day at the National Folklore Festival in Samokov

with more than 1000 participants and over 60 folklore formations from all across the country!

Bulgaria has preserved rich folklore traditions, the Bulgarian folk music is unique in Europe for its “asymmetrical” rhythms, where the musical time is not split in even beats, but in longer and shorter;  NASA`s Voyager 1 and 2 carry samples of Bulgarian folklore in  “Voyager Golden Record,” a sort of message in a bottle intended for potential alien civilizations.
