010133 - Pletenitsa - Peyo Peev gadulka
Artist: Peyo Peev - gadulka
Label: Gega New
For centuries the gadulka has been among the most favourite instruments in Bulgaria. While in the past it was used only in some folk regions, today it is widely popular throughout the country. Since the middle of the 20th century, it has been invariably included in the folk music orchestras in all regions of Bulgaria. This brought about a change in the musical concept of the folk musicians. They began to unite melodies and techniques characteristic for various folk regions or other genres. They managed to prove that even though the gadulka is a more primitive instrument, it can still compete technically with the classical string instruments.
The CD "Pletenitsa - Peyo Peev gadulka" GD 328 includes 10 instrumental Bulgarian melodies performed by Peyo Peev gadulka.
