MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS AND RITUAL PROPERTIES HALL
In the Musical Instruments and Ritual Properties Hall, you will see a rich collection of folk musical instruments – kavals, whistles, Kaba and Jura bagpipes, tambourines, etc. You will be amazed by the horrifying costumes of the kukers – whitelegs and badzhatsi as well as their cone-shaped masks. The city’s musical culture is also presented here – the barrel organ, the musical puppet theatre, and the gramophone. An exceptional part of the exhibition is the harmonium of the revivalist Nayden Gerov – the first keyboard instrument delivered to Plovdiv in the 60’s of the 19th century. The piano of the musician Angel Bukoreshtliev completes the story of the city. When you visit us, you will discover many more interesting facts about Bulgaria’s musical past. An interactive surprise awaits you.
