Join us for an extraordinary book signing event where the topic will be “Love, Light and Rituals,” focusing on themes prevalent in the novel “Mystical Emona: Soul’s Journey.”
Bulgarian culture is rich in folklore and traditions surviving since the days of the ancient Thracians. As pagan and Christian religions collided, many celebrations merged into one. “Mystical Emona” will take you on a journey to discover these unique traditions. These rituals have been transmitted from generation to generation. They promote respect for cultural diversity and human creativity and empower people to connect to the future.
Schedule of Events:
6:30 P.M.: Geni Skendo - Powerful bass flute, featuring original compositions and new arrangements of songs from Olivier Messiaen, African pygmies and the Balkans.
7:00 P.M.: Ludo Mlado - Bulgarian Folklore Dance.
7: 30 P.M.: Nelly Tonchev and Rebecca Carter – “Love, Light and Rituals” (presentation and discussion of the book).
“MYSTICAL EMONA: SOUL’S JOURNEY” WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE ON SITE or online.
