The traditional Bulgarian folk song Хубава си моя горо (You are beautiful my forest/mountain), was the thematic song for the film. Its lyrics celebrate the beauty of nature, of our native land, and sing of the pain we experience when we have to leave it. The melody carries immense beauty, sensitivity and sadness. And the violin extenuates those emotions.
Recording the music was a challenging part, because I do not have much music literacy and communicating with the musicians could be difficult. It is also my first time directing music for film and having to give directions to others of what the compositions should sound like and what kind of emotions they should carry.
Thankfully the musicians and Chris Leon, who was recording the music were excellent and all together we had a wonderful day and they brought the images to life with their heart felt music.
