about

This is a Bulgarian women's dance, traditionally played in 7/8 - an odd time signature by Western standards, but Joe couldn't leave well enough alone, oh no. It's now in 7/4, which means 2 measures of old tune are here squeezed into one measure of the new. Joe obfuscated it further with occasional counterpoint in five and three. Of course the downbeats get completely fouled up, to the great consternation of international dancers everywhere. Have fun.
