On June 21st at sunrise, my music accompanied for the third time in a row the restored Thracian Solstice Ritual at the Kabyle Sanctuary. The music, commissioned by the Yambol History Museum, accompanies the liturgy. I attended as invited artist of the Yambol Days Festival, where I also performed a concert on June 20th with baritone Jean-Pierre Couturier.

On June 20th 2019 at 18h, Jean-Pierre Couturier and I performed a concert as part of the Days of Yambol annual festival. The concert, sole event of the day, included sets of French, English and Italian selections, as well as my works Mila-Rode for organ, Salve, Regina, for baritone and organ, and Jean-Pierre Couturier’s Te Deum, first original work in the Mohawk language, which I sang and he played at the organ.
