Bulgarian vocal formation Divna publishes its first CD

The first CD of Bulgarian vocal formation Divna has been launched on musical market. It is a production of ‘Divna Art’ Company and financially supported by the State Agency For Youth and Sports. The CD’s cover is very impressive and stylish (arranged ethno motives escaping from the vivid colorfulness) as its conception for the repertoire is. As Galya Haralambieva put into words: ‘The idea is to make it lyrical, light and not overloading…make the listener feel like being about to start singing’.

Bulgarian Folklore Song is a Little Miracle

During the Multinational festival in Canberra in February this year I had the chance to meet an exceptional Bulgarian. She was in Canberra for the only reason to see the performance of ‘Varna’ ensemble.

She is a woman having passed though an awful personal tragedy and despite this fact she is still strong enough to do her best to make the Bulgarian culture and folklore popular here, in the distant Australia.

Kukeri celebration for a second time in Toronto

This year's Kukeri celebration turned out even better than last year's. Our mummers' group increased in numbers and gained experience in chasing away all things bad. We had twice as many guests, and we danced thrice as much. We wonder what it is going to be like next year.

We squeezed in a Dialect Evening, during which we spoke in and compared various Bulgarian dialects. The most incomprehensible ones proved to be the one from my father's village of Dobrich, near Haskovo, and the Shoppean dialect, proudly demonstrated by Mr. Todor Panchev from the town of Elin Pelin (you'll see Todor straining his neck towards the mike in one of the photos below). There were no competitors from such weird-speaking regions like the Strandja and the Rhodopes mountains. Let's hope those lands' sons stand up for their mothers' ways of speaking next year.

Children smiles lighten up a Cultural Club in Mladost 1, Sofia

Extremely happy mothers, grandmothers and grandfathers applauded the very first stage performance of the little dancers at Zornitsa Children’s Dance Ensemble. The occasion was the first anniversary of the group and it occurred thanks to the ambitious kids and of course due to the hard work of the young choreographer Ivaylo Parvanov, together with his assistant Dessislava Ivanova and the musician Ivaylo Kirov.
