Balkan Music &
Dance Workshops
Virtual Camp

While we regret the cancelation of both our Mendocino and Iroquois Springs workshops due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to have presented our first-ever, completely online Virtual Camps, each with three days of immersive classes, live-music performances, and community gatherings. Virtual Camp West Coast (July 17-19, 2020) was a great success, with 350 people registered. Our East Coast Virtual Camp (August 14-16) is now complete, with over 380 attendees!

Registration is now closed for both camps. Stay tuned for more EEFC-sponsored virtual events & classes!

Lyuben Dimitrov

Bulgarian Tambura

Lyuben Dimitrov was born in Gorna Orjahovica, in central Bulgaria. He graduated from the “Philip Kutev” National Folklore Arts High School in Kotel, majoring in tambura. He went on to obtain his degree from The Academy of Music, Dance and Fine Arts in Plovdiv again with a major in tambura. During his school years he participated in many contests for young musicians.

Together with the well-known kaval player Theodosii Spassov, Lyuben has performed as a bass guitarist with many popular Bulgarian folklore bands, such as Band Pazardjik, Hisarskata Grupa, Orkestar Rodopi, and Orkestar Orfei, led by Bulgarian folk violin virtuoso Georgi Yanev.

In 2000 Lyuben and his family moved to Atlanta, GA, where he plays Greek and Bulgarian music at festivals, weddings, and dance events.
