In this extraordinary film series, children of different cultures share one thing: a love of music which is their source of joy and motivation.

This DVD focuses on a talented young child’s devotion to a traditional instrument from Bulgaria, the history and making of that instrument, how unwritten musical traditions are passed on, and a final public presentation and approval of the young musician before elders and society. Witness their daily family and community life in impoverished circumstances, and revel at how music transforms their young lives. 

Kostadin and his Kaval
Kostadin has a passion for music--especially the kaval, a type of flute, but his father frowns on it because he needs his help in the fields. Share the story as Kostadin is chosen to play in a folk festival in a neighboring town and prepares in secret. The country life of Bulgaria becomes real as we share his passion and family struggles.   

Highly recommended for all ages. 26 min. Performance rights are included with the purchase of this DVD.
