There are many opinions about how to count and therefore annotate the rhythm of this dance. See the COMMENTS
Craig Paul, Kaneohe, Hawaii, wrote: “I see that Sadi Moma is commonly given a time signature of 7/8, yet the only instance I find of it in Bulgarian songbooks have it in 8/8 (3+2+3) and Yves’ recording is likewise in 8.
For those who can’t “hear” that 8/8 I’ve extracted the vocal and arranged”non-traditional” music around it. Both versions (and I may do more) are “drop-in replacements” for the dance music we all know.“

I absolutely concur with the comment by Craig Paul about the original recording as used by Yves being in 8 – I’d rather say 8/16, instead of 8/8, matching the Bulgarian sheet music page he posted, but this is mainly a matter of speed perception. The rhythm, on the other hand, can be counted. And while the song part in Dobrinka Šangova’s recording clearly has a 3-2-3 rhythm, the instrumental part is played in 3-3-2. This is quite exceptional; I’ve never before found such a combination in old recordings – or transcriptions. It would be interesting to know if there are more.
Anyway, here is my sheet music:” http://www.folkloretanznoten.de/SadiMoma.pdf
