Program Notes

Balkan Seven gets its inspiration from the lively dances of the Balkan region of Southeastern Europe encompassing Greece, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Serbia, and Croatia. 7/8 is the most popular uneven dance rhythm in all of Balkan music, especially in Macedonia, where a line dance with a 3+2+2 subdivision is prevalent.
