Silence of the lambs…
Yes it was lug nuts in the carcasses last weekend at the more-or-less annual Lamb Roast and Bulgarian Folk Music & Dance Party upstate at Breezy Hill Orchard near Poughkeepsie NY.
Tell me Clarice, how noisy are those lambs?
Kabile has been together for about 20 years, this particular formation a sort of a reunion, as some band members had emigrated to the US. They take their name from their hometown, a small village located just north of the city of Yambol in Thrace. The players/ instruments are Ivan Handzhiev (vocals, accordions), Nikolay Doctorov (kaval – wooden shepherd’s flute), Dzhenko Andreev (gajda – bagpipe), Nikolai Kolev (gadulka – pear shaped bowed lute), and Donka Koleva (vocals). It was elder Hippie heaven – wonderful playing with a varied enough repertoire to keep you interested till that lamb was fully digested.
