They appear to be Bulgarian gypsies, according to the name given by the poster above, I looked in wikipedia. Whatever it is, I like it.

Or at least the name given by the poster above is a Bulgarian gypsy of Turkish origin. Playing Bulgarian gypsy music.

Neolithic Rock sanctuary in Bulgaria. The earliest traces of human civilisation discovered so far at Perperikon were dated to the late Neolithic Period, 6th-5th millennium BCE. During the late Bronze Age in particular, 18th-12th century BCE, Perperikon saw its first heyday, which probably coincided with the peak of the Mycenaean and the Minoan civilisations.

I just saw your link.

Amazing people.

Reminds me of some places I saw in my childhood, in Yugoslavia traveling through with my parents.

That’s the most incredible tom playing I’ve ever heard.

Which instrument is the tom?

If you mean the drummer, he’s incredible.
