It’s not a jig!!

Djinovsko Horo is a bulgarian tune in 5/8 time signature. I’ve put it in the section “Jig”, because there’s no other tune type like this.
I love those bulgarian and balkan tunes..!
This version is transcribed from L

Its not a jig!

I have put some irish-balkan tunes in the Barndance section. Maybe we need to come to some sort of agreed bad fit here! ;-}

Know the source of the transcription?

Was this from Andy Irvine’s “East Wind” recording? Cant put my finger on it….


I heard Lunasa play this on their Kinnitty Sessions album.

I wish Neil, some are also filed under ‘slip jigs’… 😏

Re: Djinovsko Horo

This is actually not a djinovsko horo (which is in 6/8), but rather a paidushko horo (pajdusko oro in Macedonia) in 5/8.
And the bar lines are placed incorrectly.

Paidushko Horo, X:2

Here is a setting with the bar lines set correctly. The rhythm is “short-long”, i.e. 2+3/8
I’ve also excluded any ornamentation.

Re: Djinovsko Horo

And a Bulgarian version of the tune. First two parts similar, but then it also goes off somewhere else.
Here you can also see the dance.
I think it’s Nedyalko Nedyalkov playing the kaval flute on this recording.
