Petkov – Bulgarian choir chooses fiery Spanish music and "Are you a tulip, are you a hymn?" learn how to perform a flamenco star. There are also many other Bulgarian popular folk songs and not so popular that I was looking for them to match them to Flamenco, so that everything would sound in one artistic picture, as if it existed for years and at the same time showed new music.
