A Late-Spring Party at Sv. Dimitar Church

29.May, 2010 The Canadian - Bulgarian Association and our folk dance group Igranka organised a great late-spring party at the Sv. Dimitar Church. It was an overwhelming success. The Traki (Thracians) Band, who were invited especially for the occasion from Montreal, played from 8 p.m. till 3 a.m. Apart from the folk music, they also performed a lot of old and contempopary Bulgarian pop music. The most exciting part of the party came about when some of our Toronto musicians got up from their seats in the audience and joined the band on the stage. The high-pitch sound of the Bulgarian gaida (bagpipes), played by Dimitar, got deeply into everybody's soul. We were all so lucky to withness that incredible, professional jamming session. What a treat! The dances continued well into the early hours of the next day. The mix of folk music, dances, great food and close friends made this evening one to remember for a long time.
