Cigansko Horo (Bulgaria)


There are many dances called Cigansko. This one is a variant of the dance Čičovata. There are also almost as many ways of doing Čičovata as there are villages in Bulgaria. So don’t be surprised if you see something different. This should not be confused with the Macedonian folk dance Ciganko which is currently popular in the US.
