Book Launch

Join author Martin Koenig on a journey through eastern Europe, time, and music in honor of the launch of his newest book, Sound Portraits from Bulgaria. 

“Between 1966 and 1979, educator and cultural documentarian Martin Koenig made half a dozen trips to Bulgaria. Working in villages throughout the country, Koenig filmed, recorded, and photographed the lively, yet endangered, aspects of Bulgaria’s traditional culture. The results are indelibly gathered in Sound Portraits from Bulgaria: the vibrant rural life he experienced, the virtuosic musicians and dancers he met, the extraordinary music they made, and the joyous rituals and festivals he witnessed. This collection celebrates a way of life that has largely vanished due to industrialization, technology, globalization, and emigration.” 

Get the scoop about the book and music straight from the Smithsonian itself here.

Visit Open Space on December 8th at 4pm for a story over 50 years in the making.
