Kulsko Horo

This is a horo from Macedonia or Bulgaria as played by Sláinte and other Swiss trad bands. I think it is a tune for the gaida (pipes) which is fully chromatic.
I know it is not really Irtrad, but it is fun to play and was played in sessions here already…

L: ?

Perhaps you want L: 1/4? L: 1/8 doesn’t add up to a meter of 4/4.

M:2/4

Sorry, I’ve corrected it to the right mesure now.

Finally, a Bulgarian tune that doesn’t have a demented rhythm!

Joe , maybe the musicans in the areas where these tunes come from think, it is a pretty stupid ryth, but for us poor gusy it is hard enough to follow the strange modal changes 😉

I recently picked up a great recording of this tune from a Balkan group known as the "Zornitsa Orchestra", and the parts seem pretty different after the second part, though.
