On October 3 the regular Friday dance night of Boulder International Folk Dancers (BIFD) will be given over to a dance party with the traditional Bulgarian band "Bulgarika."

Bulgarian master gudulka (Bulgarian folk fiddle) player Nikolay Kolev and his wife, prizewinning singer Donka Koleva, have been the centerpiece of Donald Vukovic's "Bulgaria in Boulder" celebration for several years. Each year they have brought a different combination of musicians, representing different styles of Bulgarian music.

This time the band will emphasize traditional folk music. Players will be Nikolay and Donka plus Vassil Bebelekov (gaida/Bulgarian bagpipe) (Vassil will be familiar to those who have attended the EEFC's Mendocino Balkan Camp) and Dragni Dragnev (tapan/drum; kaval / Bulgarian flute; gaida, and keyboards). They are calling their US tour: "Horoto e Vechno - The Dance is Eternal."

This year Donald is teaming with BIFD, with partial funding from the Alex "Tink" Wilson Folk Life Fund, to present a simpler version of his grand party. There won't be a dinner this time, but you are invited to bring potluck snacks, desserts and beverages.

Also, there are several events at the Avalon that evening, so carpool if you can and come early to find a parking space Questions? Call Donald, 303-818-3765.
