Kabile is a multi-talented group of musicians who perform the hauntingly expressive melodies, irregular rhythms, and fiery dance tempos of their native Thrace , in southern Bulgaria , on traditional instruments: kaval (folk flute), gaida (bagpipe), gudulka (folk violin),  tambura (guitar), tapan (large drum) and accordion. Their vocalist Donka Koleva was the featured singer in the film "Everything is Illuminated".

 

The group is comprised of professional musicians from Bulgaria who have taught music in the Balkans, Eastern Europe and the USA . Their performances are electrifying and full of wonderful music and song.
