We will remind you the emotions that the participants from Indonesia, Croatia, Lithuania, Iran and Bulgaria have felt during the accompanying event "Master class" of VII Wolrd Championship of Folklore "World Folk" 2017. They learned how to play instruments and dance performances, atypical for their area folklore as well as to embroider. They really had fun learning the sophisticated but еye-catching embroidering technique typical for the Thrace ethnographic region of Bulgaria. The international meeting turned performers into contemporary masters of the arts.

Here are the emotions that the event generated:

"It is very interesting because we can present our instruments and show other participants how to play them. I enjoy being able to be part of this international Master Class." - Claudia from Folklore ensemble "Kencana Pradipa" (Depok, Indonesia)

"My impression is that it is very interesting to see people from all over the world, as well as their traditional instruments from different continents and countries, all in one place." - Prof. Dario Cebic, artistic director of Music school (Dugo selo, Croatia)

"The friendship between the cultures impressed me. We build bridges

among the nations." - Andrius from Folklore ensemble "Ratilelis" (Kaunas, Lithuania)

"We participated in a very attractive meeting of different nations. We showed the culture and instruments of Iran. The master class proved that we can all be united by music and instruments." - Seyed Jalal Mohammadi, artistic director of Music group "Avaye Tabari" (Sari, Iran).

"I am very glad to be here, we had a lot of fun! We showed how to dance "Selsko shopsko horo" and "Petrichko babechko horo" - circle dances." - Desislava Ivanova, artistic director of Dance group "Srednogorski polah" (Ihtiman, Bulgaria).
