T10 Music of Bulgaria
Merchiston Courses - Classroom Space
5 Day Course (Saturday to Wednesday)
Have you ever wanted to enrich your knowledge of different musical cultures? With this course you will have the chance to meet and taste traditional Bulgarian music in tunes from different parts of Bulgaria on the harp. We will listen to traditional ensembles and choirs from Bulgaria and explore the connections between the music, the traditional dances and the folk costumes. Bulgarian music and dances are characterised with quite specific irregular rhythms, dynamic melodies, dissonant harmonies, and bright colours. Come and be inspired in your own music making or writing with new sounds and rhythms in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
