Words and sheet music for 21 Bulgarian songs are presented. The document is part of an ethnic heritage teaching unit on folk arts and music of the Bulgarian people. The objective of the project is to help American students in elementary, junior high, and high schools understand and appreciate Bulgarians and their culture. Songs are presented in five categories--hymns and patriotic songs, traditional songs, songs of immigrants, children's songs and games, and seasonal songs. Project developers state that the selected songs are the folk songs and traditional ballads which were sung by early Bulgarian immigrants to the United States and are still being sung today. For each song, the title and text are presented in both the English and Bulgarian languages. (DB)
