"Balfolk" is a cultural event that combines traditional folk music from various European regions with dance. It originated in France, inspired by the Breton fest-noz, and has gained popularity across Europe. In Bulgaria, the "Balfolkariya" association has been promoting this cultural fusion for a year and is celebrating its first anniversary on November 25.
The team is currently planning a major event for its birthday, including live music from Italy, a Spanish dance coach and lots of fun activities, but in order for everything to go as planned, "Balfolkariya" is seeking volunteers. You in?
