about

The summation of a one year Fulbright fellowship in Bulgaria Folk Music, Kotka on the Sill features an eclectic mix of original and ancient songs fusing the folklore of Bulgaria with jazz and other modern influences.

This Album is dedicated the 20th anniversary of the Bulgarian Fulbright Commission, who without their generous support this work would not have been possible.
