Instruction in dance, vocal music, and instrumental music. At the Hotel Manastir in Berovo in Eastern Macedonia. High in the hills near the Bulgarian border, Berovo remains pleasant even when Skopje is an oven. The hotel is one of the very best in the country, with beautiful rooms and great traditional food from local sources!
The seminar may include a visit to the Berovo Roma neighborhood, music by the local Roma band Maleshevski Melos, and perhaps a visit by the Kochani Orkestra. The week ends with the Ilinden celebration at the nearby village of Vladimirovo. This is a real event, not a staged-for-tourists production, And it's a gas!
