July 28 @ 6:00 pm
This event is not sponsored by CREECA.
BULGARIAN DANCE PARTY with music by KOLEV KARAVAN
Band kicks off about 7:00
Quick-start teaching at 6:00
These master musicians are special friends of Madison and know us so well! Donka Koleva (vocals) & Nikolay Kolev (gadulka) led legendary Thracian wedding band Kabile for decades before moving to America. They tour each autumn & visit us every normal year, most recently with Bulgarika. Michael Ginsburg (trumpet, tupan) & Belle Birchfield (tambura) are core members of New York’s pioneering Balkan brass band Zlatne Uste whom you may know from the film “Brasslands.” Michael was Featured Teacher at Folk Ball 2020 and does both parts of the dancer-musician dialog. That dynamic conversation is the full-spectrum ethnic dance experience and it’s right here Thursday so join the line – or just watch & enjoy “the swaying of our beautiful horo” to terrific music!
This event is organized by Madison Folk Dance Unlimited. Full vaccinations for COVID required.
