PIRIN SINGS FOLKLORE FESTIVAL - AUTHENTIC MUSIC, DANCES AND CRAFTS

PIRIN SINGS FOLKLORE FESTIVAL
In the mid of the summer – the beginning of August, the Predel Pass between Pirin and Rila Mountains connecting the Razlog Valley with the settlements along Struma River, welcomes the participants in the traditional folklore festival called Pirin Sings. Amateur performers from all the 14 municipalities in the Pirin Region and from the whole country gather together to take part in the singing and dancing contests on the several stages scattered around the Predel meadows. The Festival is a celebration of colours and traditional costumes, the sounds of old instruments and the melodies of folklore songs. Each year the festival ends with a grand concert whose culmination is the long ‘horo’ – the traditional Bulgarian dance including everyone present.
PIRIN SINGS FOLKLORE FESTIVAL
For the first time, the Pirin Sings Festival was organized in the distant 1962 and, until 1985, was held every five years. After a 12-year pause, it was restored in 1997. In the last years, the Festival is being organized every even year and is visited by thousands of people from Bulgaria but also from Greece, Russia, Ukraine, Germany, Sweden, Japan, South Korea, USA, Canada, and others.
PIRIN SINGS FOLKLORE FESTIVAL
In its essence, the Pirin Sings Festival is an initiative for exploring, preserving and promoting authentic folklore songs and dances. It is a series of celebrations of traditional art and ethnographic imaging. During the Festival the participants present samples of the folklore songs, dances, crafts, rituals, instruments, costumes, jewelry, decorations, pagan beliefs, and the diversity of local cultural calendar. The traditions of the Pirin Region and other parts of Bulgaria are being promoted, with special attention paid to the diphthong singing and the mandolin music. The folklore of the Bulgarian Muslims is also included, with its special costumes, rituals and songs.

  2. Hi,
    The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not disappoint me as much as this particular one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I truly thought you would probably have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something that you could possibly fix if you were not too busy searching for attention. If you want to read Happy New Year Quotes please have a look at this.
    Thanks
