For the 8th time, Kardzhali is hosting the Folklore Festival of amateur folk dance clubs "Perpera". 

The forum will gather today on the stage of the theater in Kardzhali more than 420 amateur dancers from all over the country. They will perform their favorite Bulgarian folk songs and thus the diversity of Bulgaria's folklore dance wealth will be presented, reports BNR Kardzhali.

Since its inception, Perpera Festival has not had a competitive nature and is rather a meeting between friends with the idea of popularizing Bulgarian dance folklore.

Listen to the daily news from Bulgaria presented in "Bulgaria Today" podcast, available in Spotify.
