Abdala (Bulgaria)


Abdala (AHB-dah-lah), sometimes known as Vlasko Dajcovo, was learned by Yves Moreau during March, 1970 from Nikola Vajtusev, a 75 year old man from the village of Vrav, Vidin District in N.W. Bulgaria. This type of dance is quite common throughout several villages along the Danube in N.W. Bulgaria. It is danced by “Vlachs” (Romanian minorities). The dance was presented by Yves Moreau at the 1991 University of the Pacific Folk Dance Camp. Dance notes.
