Dear, friends of the Ethnic Music!

WE ARE THRILLED TO WELCOME the very talented Theodosii Spasov and the musicians from the famous Bulgarian Folk Quintet "Omaino!". This will be an unforgettable EXPERIENCE and will present the beauty and cultural uniqueness of Bulgarian Folklore.
Under the direction of world-renowned kaval (traditional, wooden shepherd's flute) virtuoso Theodosii Spasov, the stellar musician of the quintet, will present performances of traditional Bulgarian folk music in a unique and exciting manner.

The event will be held in a banquet hall suitable for traditional horo dancing. Whether you are enjoying from the side lines or participating as an experienced dancer or a new learner, you will have the opportunity to be part of the rich Bulgarian culture. The establishment has a cash bar and offers family style appetizer platters.

The evening will begin at 7 p.m. with the special opening act of Alex Hristov, a talented Bulgarian guitarist and composer, who is famous for his ability to play traditional Flamenco, while venturing into Jazz, Latin and other genres.

A Subjective History of Recreational (International) Folk Dancing in the USA -1

Joyce Hermon Himes sent us this article. How folk dancing was promoted as the antidote to seedy dance halls, and other social movements. Also, as you scroll down, many dance videos, some of which you may never have seen before. It's long; you may want to bookmark it and come back to it often.
