Самоковско хоро (Biala Rosa, Gankino) – Bulgaria” Add yours This dance, called devetorka in the US, is called “pravo” by the folks in Pirin, even though it is not at all what we call Pravo here. Galia Kuo, in Chicago now, grew up in Pirin, where it was the main dance. It should also be mentioned that all 2+2+2+3 = 9/8 music is useful for Samokovsko Horo. Daïchovo is also in 9/8, divided 2+2+2+3, but that final “3” is a 2 with an added pick up beat, so we would say that Daïchovo is 2+2+2+2+1, whereas devetorka/Samokovsko is 2+2+2+1+2, with that final “3” being a “quick-slow”. It has to be played that way, or the little hop-step at the end doesn’t work. Dzhanguritsa is also in devetorka-style 9/8. LikeLike Reply Great stuff! Thanks you once again. Jim P.S. Our folk tours have been to Samokov several times. The âSelf Smithâ town. LikeLike Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
