Cherven Traktor was formed in 2009 to further the preservation of authentic Bulgarian folk music. It is the artistic merging of two couples, Nikolay Kolev (gadulka) and Donka Kolev (vocals) , Belle Birchfield (tambura) and Michael Ginsburg (tupan). Whether performing at the Brooklyn Folk Festival, a college campus or for a traditional dance, Cherven Traktor keeps alive the sounds of Bulgaria and Macedonia under the banner, "Horoto e vechno," "The dance is forever!"
