bulgarian 2 voice song from the pirin region
I learned this song from my teacher Stanka in Plovdiv at the Bulgarian Folk Music Academy. The song is simply (or not so simply!) about two people making a bet. It is a traditional two-voice song from the Pirin region, where I studied in Bulgaria the longest with Village Harmony. Below are the main recordings, along with recordings of the ornamentation slowed down to help you practice. You can see a video of my teacher Stanka demonstrating Rhodope style ornamentation below for fun.
