Geamparalele – Romania


As Rustemul is like Bulgarian Pajduško (both Q,S,), so is Geamparalele like Bulgarian Račenica (both Q,Q,S,).  Geamparalele (jahm-pah-RAH-leh-leh) is very much a living dance – especially in the (former Bulgarian) region of Dobrogea.

Geamparalele seems to be not so much a dance as a rhythm applied to other dances.  In these two YouTubes, we see the Q,Q,S, rhythm applied to simple walking, a Račenica-like step, the Taproot Dance, and a kind of Polka.
