About "Mare Vostrum | Trinitas (Kopanitza)"
This original composition instrumental piece, a suite of Bulgarian dances, contains a traditional tune right in the middle. The Kopanitsa dance, also known in some parts as Gankino, has an 11/8 time signature. In this case, the hurdy-gurdy is the driving force of the piece, inspired by the ornamental and modal sounds of the Gaida, an instrument of the Bulgarian tradition typically used to play this kind of dance.
