Over 1000 people, keepers of Bulgarian spirit and traditions, gather in Balchik on the Black Sea from 21 to 24 September for the International Folklore Festival "Sea of Rhythms". 

The festival will feature live performances by singers and dancers from Romania, and video appearances of artists from Norway and Denmark. Authentic and arranged folk music will be presented, as well as a 150-year-old costume from the Yambol region, preserved for several generations. 

A crafts street, workshops and a children's painting corner complete the programme. On the first and last day of the event, a costume parade will pass along the main street from the Marine Station to the festival stage in front of the City Hall. On 21 September, the parade is at 17.00 from Fisherman's Square.
