This one sings it in Italian--"Bozna mia--mi amore..." scratch



This is the more traditional way:

One of the most oft-heard sayings in this part of the world is: "What do you expect after 800 years of Turkish domination?" Laughing

The Ottoman Empire endured for 800 years--until 1914 in some countries.

Naturally, the scars have yet to heal for many musicians.

The people in Bulgaria still sing very strangely.

I just meant that "Enrique" didn't sound like a Bulgarian name.

If you tell them that, I predict they will say "That's because of 800 years of Turkish domination." Laughing
