Severnyashka (Northern Bulgaria) folklore region

The Northern Bulgaria region features very rich and varied both musical and dance material. Due to the folklore diversity, it is divided into:

Western part: The horo dances abound with brisk movements, a lot of stomping, syncopation, interlacing. They are performed with fast legs, and are accompanied by a very characteristic whooping. The female costume is a of the two-apron type, and the male costumes are of the white-cloth type.

Middle Northern part: The horos are danced widely, with hops, frishy, with abundant play of hands. All these features of the northerners’ dance make their horos beautiful, vital and exuberant.

Eastern part: The dance is extremely colorful, brimming over with a lot of stomping, squatting, with quick feet; it features interesting hands play of the malei dancers and specific recitative. The women's dance is slightly springy, very adherent to ground and with pretty characteristic whooping.
