A slow, soulful folksong from the Bulgarian part of Macedonia called Pirin learned at our Village Harmony Macedonia camp in 2011. Easy, rich harmonies with a repeating refrain, making the song accessible. Can be sung a cappella or with instruments. Comes with pronunciation guide.
O Pirin Mountain, how beautiful you are! In winter, full of snow.
In summer, many heros near every water, the leaders with rifles.
(A song from the time of the long Ottoman occupation)
