This paper presents the unique richness and diversity of the Bulgarian folk music. It discusses its modal specificity – the widespread use of old modal structures and chromatic sound lines, the metrorhytmical diversity; indicates some features such as the non-measured song. The most commonly used modal structures and the most widespread metrums are highlighted. A special focus is the successional bond of the native folklore and the professional Bulgarian musical works.
