Makedonska Kitka Choir’s Twenty-fifth Anniversary

28.Apr.2007 Gjorgi Jovanovski from the Sveti Iliya church’s board of trustees invited Igranka to participate in the celebration of the 25-th anniversary of their folk song choir Makedonska Kitka. The Macedonian folkdance group Ilinden also took part in the programme. We joined in with folk music and dances from all ethnographic regions of Bulgaria. Our young Monika performed four songs, which made the entire audience explode with ovations. All performances and later the dance party brought about a tremendous joy and were a great success. As a friend of ours mentioned, “Tonight the border between Bulgaria and Macedonia has been erased”. We hope the ties between our two communities continue to grow and develop.
