Whoever travelled the balkan region with backpack and sleeping bag might very well have met the locals and encountered the people’s love for traditional songs. Making music and singing is still very common in this region and even the cool teenagers don’t find it embarrassing to sit outside with their families and singing along to bag pipes and violins. There’s a great Bulgarian documentary from 2003 that captures the emotions that come into play with folk songs and the different nationalities in the balkan region, it’s called Whose Is This Song? by Bulgarian film maker Adela Peeva.
