"Macedonian Pearl Folk - Seminar 2009"
“MACEDONIAN PEARL FOLK-SEMINAR 2009”
Hotel “Manastir” - Berovo - MACEDONIA 5-16 July 2009
Hallo dear friends: MUSICIANS, DANCERS, SINGERS & VISITORS...
"Macedonian Pearl Folk-Seminar 2009".... Will be in eastern part of Macedonia-city of Berovo-HOTEL" MANASTIR" high 4 stars hotel, 5 miles from Ratevo,( Ratevka Dance) 3 miles from Rusinovo village( Berovka Dance) and 2 miles from one of the most beautiful mountain lake in Macedonia-"Berovo Lake". This is the most beautiful and clean ECO region in Macedonia. Accommodation is much better then hotel "Biser" in Struga, and the neighborhood is authentic Village style. Gypsy quart is very close to the hotel, so it will be a lot of dancing and singing all the time. Big open market is 0.5 mile from the hotel. For the dancers- finally..... we have: WOOD FLOOR - ORIGINAL VILLAGE STYLE WOOD... It will be few more local dance teachers for traditional village style. Of course every night will be live music with Stefce Stojkovski, Bajsa Arifovska, Igor Dimovski, Ratko Zlatanovski, Goran and Adrijana Alachki and more local brass& zurla bands like surprise...
I hope you will enjoy again in our beautiful Macedonia, exploring eastern part of our beauties. Next year I expect people from USA,Canada,Germany,
Belgium, Sweden,Norway, Hungary,Australia, Brazil and Japan. (Masaru Nagae from Japan is first on the list for the next seminar)... The number of participants is LIMITED on 40 people maximum. So , one good thing is- THE HOTEL WILL BE ONLY FOR US,we will not disturb anybody... Capacity of the hotel is around 50 people... but much comfortably is number of 40 people.The nights in Berovo is very cold,so in the middle of the restourant we have big village style fire place.
It will be a lot of work for you next year..I can tell you... in the middle of the restaurant is old loom (wear's frame, or jenny or weaving mill) for you and all the participants of my seminar. All the time during our seminar two old women in national costumes from Maleshevo region will work(singing old traditional songs) on this old fashion "machine" making traditional costumes... Sounds GOOD?
It will be nice to start to think about next "Macedonian Pearl Folk-Seminar 2009" from now , making reservations...
Also I will show you my village " Vladimirovo" included roast lamb and home made bread....(3 miles from the Hotel).... In the free time, Bajsa will show us a lot of things in Gypsy (Roma ) neighborhood (relatives,musician's, dancers)... It will be picnic on sheepfold in the mountain... and a lot of surprises...
You can visit www.macedonianfolk. com there is a lot of picture from last seminars and video clips....
FINALY FOR ALL GOOD PEOPLE:
Keep dancing, and KEEP PLAYING OUR BEAUTIFUL ....... MACEDONIAN MUSIC&DANCE
WE LOVE YOU ALL...
