The music of Bulgaria, a country long considered a cultural crossroads, is known for hauntingly expressive melodies, fascinating irregular rhythms and fiery dance tempos. In 2007 some of that country’s finest musicians formed the band ‘Bulgarika’, featuring music ranging from pure folklore to contemporary folk compositions. Comprised of gadulka virtuoso Nikolay Kolev, internationally-renowned singer Donka Koleva and select musicians, Bulgarika performs at concerts, parties, educational institutions and other public and private venues across the U.S. and internationally. Bulgarika’s 2014 tour presents “Horoto e Vechno” – “The Dance is Eternal” – and invites you to experience the unique range of Bulgarian rhythms and dances and savor a taste of the Bulgarian lifestyle. Bulgarika 2014 is these musicians Nikolay Kolev (gadulka), Donka Koleva (vocals), Vassil Bebelekov (gaida), Dragni Dragnev (tapan, gaida, keyboard).
