Macedonian Folk Songs for Voice and
		Tambura Volume 2

NEW DOWNLOAD VERSION! This 150-page book, by David Bilides and Rachel MacFarlane is now available only as an online download. The download consists of the book plus all 35 Macedonian folk songs as m4a audio files. The 92 minutes of music were recorded from the original records, or from cassettes, and digitally re-mastered. I've chosen 3 song samples to give you a preview.

Readers of both volumes have had many positive comments.

Part of the proceeds of the sale of this book will go to Search for Common Ground in Macedonia.
