Before Italy, I was in Mendocino in Northern California for a week at Balkan Camp, singing and dancing in the Redwoods and studying various Balkan vocal traditions including classes in Bulgarian, Turkish, Romani, Greek, Albanian, and Macedonian singing. What delightful fun. Here’s me obviously thrilled to be learning a new Bulgarian song taught to us by master singing/teacher Tsvetanka Varimezova. I’m the dork with the headlamp.
