FOLK SONGS AND DANCES FROM THE BALKANS - PANFLUTE EDITION is a small, but representative collection of well-known and lesser-known beautiful melodies from the Balkans. The difference between the folk music from Macedonia, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, Serbia, Dalmatia, Turkey or Slovenia is very easy to hear. There are also distinct regional differences inside these national styles.

This great cultural diversity is transmitted to the music of these peoples, which constitutes an important part of their lives and traditions. The types and styles of vocal and instrumental folk music are very different: slow old epic ballads with archaic form and rich ornaments, vital songs with beautiful melodies and various texts about all the human feelings (love, satirical, drinking, lullabies, etc), pastoral songs, dynamic male or female dances for large and small groups performed in an open or closed circle, semicircle, straight or winding line.

The carefully chosen the melodies offer a rich, enjoyable and varied book. The arrangements and other adaptations (keys, ornaments, etc.) have been introduced to make this beautiful South-Eastern European music more suitable for performance on the panflute. It is recommended to repeat each piece 3-4 times because the melodies (like all folk songs in the world) are very short.
