Cupurlika Oro

This is a Macedonian Circle dance (the equivalent of a Serbian Kolo) in the typical 7/8 time signature (counting 123-12-12 to give you the 7 beats). 

LIKA Orchestra has always played a number of different Macedonian Oro’s at most functions as these are popular at Serbian events and most people know how to dance to an Oro as well as of course Serbian Kolos…we in fact recorded a Macedonian Oro, called “Mak Oro” (the name we christened it since we never knew its’ real name) on our first CD “Lika za Uvek”. 

Since my late mother was a Canadian of Macedonian heritage, I always try to include something Macedonian in all of my recording endeavors.
