Students from MU-Varna Presented Bulgaria at an International Folklore Festival in the Czech Republic

The folklore ensemble of Medical University - Varna was the only Bulgarian participant which presented our country with dignity at the 18th International Festival of Brass Bands and Folklore Ensembles FEDO, which took place from 1st to 4th September 2016 in Zlin, the Czech Republic. More than 50 participants from Hungary, Slovakia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, Lithuania, Croatia, Slovenia and the Czech Republic took part in the festival.

The girls and boys from the folklore ensemble of MU-Varna, with an artistic director Diana Dimitrova, blew the audience away with their performances of the Bulgarian dances “Shirto”, “Zadyavka” (Banter), “Pirinski”, “Shopski”, “Dance without a Name” and “Balkan Syndrome”, dancing on stages, squares and streets in the city during the two consecutive days. With the dynamic performances of folk rhythms, the future medics managed to tempt the local residents to join the Bulgarian horo. During the festival the student Hilyal Mehmed performed two folk songs and impressed the audience with her beautiful voice.

After the long and stormy applauses of the audience, which accompanied the performances of the students from the folklore ensemble of MU-Varna during the festival programme, the organizers chose precisely Bulgarian performances to close the festival.

 “Quite deservedly, the students from MU-Varna proudly waved our flag to the sounds of the Bulgarian rhythms during the traditional procession along the streets of Zlin and were acclaimed by diverse audiences. I’d like to say thank you to all students of MU-Varna, who presented Bulgaria, to the band that accompanied the performances during the regular rehearsals all summer long, for the flawless presentation of the University, the city and our country on the international stage,” said the artistic director of the ensemble Diana Dimitrova.
