101 KABA GAIDINY is one of the latest projects of Young Bulgarian Voices NY.
It stared in October 2013 with the goal to teach and create awareness about the art of playing the traditional Bulgarian KABA GAIDA and TUPAN, not only through the Bulgarian community in New York City, but also among the wide audience in the tri-state area and the entire United States. We have played at Golden Festival every year from 2015 to 2019. Come play with us!
The Kaba Gaida (Bulgarian Bagpipe) is an aerophone musical instrument, from the Rhodope Mountains. It is larger and lower pitched that the Djura Gaida.
We hope that soon the number of our KABA GAIDA players will reach the ambitious number of 101.
And after that, if we have to… we will change the name – to The 1001 KABA GAIDI – NY.
GAIDA CLUB – beginners and advanced groups meets every Sunday from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
