Exploring Traditional Bulgarian Music with Visiting Artist Clare Lyons.

Last Friday, we were extremely privileged to have Visiting Artist, Clare Lyons, join our G5 music class. Clare used to be the co-director of the “London Bulgarian Choir” until she left London to establish herself in Chiang Mai. She is now running her own choir: “Global Harmonies”. She first helped our lucky students inquire about Traditional Bulgarian Music – a musical style that was declared “intangible heritage” by UNESCO. We also practiced different singing techniques in order to develop our “chest-voice”. Eventually, we started learning a highly difficult song, with 2-parts harmony, called “OZDOLU IDU” which is over 2,000 years old. This is a children-song about a cart let loose on a slope with boys and girls playing around. Clare will be coming back to our music class within a couple of weeks to continue working on this song. Moreover, Clare and her “Global Harmonies” choir will be coming to Prem on December 6 to offer a very special concert for our community (and the G5 students will be joining the choir to sing “Ozdolu Idu”). More info about this new event will be published soon.
