Balkan party music in Seattle

Bugarsko K4 Oro

Posted on Jul 27, 2018

A Thracian-style dance instrumental by Ferus Mustafov, the great Macedonian Rom sax and clarinet player. (K4 refers to Klub K4 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.) The transcription below shows only the first six phrases of a longer melody, a chunk that we think makes a nice one-page chart for a Bulgarian pravo horo. We often play this after the Thracian dance song Edru na oder lezase.

The chart shows the first 1:40 of this. The rest is left as an exercise for the student.
