Balkan Festival of Academic Youth

The city of Varna was the kind host of the First Balkan Folk Student Festival from June 8th – 10th 2007.



The idea for the festival was born last year when the Students’ Councils of five universities from Varna decided to organize a local folk competition. This idea developed into creating a bigger festival which would give groups from all over the Balkans the chance to participate. The criteria was the wish of the local groups to participate and the only condition was that all those taking part were students of the universities their groups were going to represent.

Fire-dancing in Bulgaria

The Christian holiday of Sts. Constantine and Helen celebrated on May 21, incorporates a variety of folk rituals. In the Rhodope Mountains where sheep breeding was the prevalent means of livelihood in the past, herds were taken out to pastures on that day. In the farming regions of the Thracian Valley, rituals were held to protect crops from hails.



The holiday is particularly attractive the way it is celebrated in the Strandja Mountain, Southeastern Bulgaria, the center of fire dancing or Nestinari ritual.

Народната певица Валя Балканска на 65 години

Българката, чийто глас лети в Космоса на американската совалка “Вояджър”, този месец изпълни 65 години.



Валя Балканска е родена през 1942 година в махала Лагът, недалече от село Арда в сърцето на южните Родопи. Двегодишна загубва баща си, загинал като участник във Втората световна война, но знае, че когато той пеел, планината се люлеела. Осемгодишна запява на сцената и днес репертоарът й съдържа около 300 песни.
