‘World Series: Gadulka Strings’ is the latest in this series of packs that feature compositions from all over the world, performed using rare and unique instruments. This pack contains high quality recordings of Gadulka, suitable for film, advertisements and music productions. These traditional compositions were performed by a professional Gadulka player and recorded using Schoeps CMC 6 phantom powered amplifier and Colette Modular Capsule from two different positions. The Gadulka is a traditional Bulgarian bowed string instrument. It has three (occasionally four or five) main strings with up to sixteen sympathetic resonating strings. Only the main melodic strings are touched by the player’s fingers and the strings are never pressed all the way down to touch the neck. The instrument is held vertically, with the bow held perpendicular in an under-hand hold. A possible origin of the Gadulka may be the Crete Lira (Crete Island), Calabrian Lira (Italy) or the Kemenche strings (Turkey).
This pack features 18 stunning traditional Bulgarian masterpieces played on Gadulka. These folklore compositions came from different regions of the country, such as the Sofia Region, the Dobridja region, the Strandja mountain, the Trakia region, the Bulgarian Macedonia region, and more. You will find several different types of Horo, Rachenitsa and other folklore pieces that are hundreds of years old and capture the spirit of this traditionally rich piece of land.
