Improvisation based around the the Bulgarian folk song 'Razbolyal se e mlad Stuyan''

This was for a vocal masterclass with David Moss at Trinity College. We were supposed to bring some music to sing for him, but I asked the pianist (who's name I will find out!) to improvise too. We had to sing a one-minute extract of our song bookended by one minute of improvised prologue and one minute of improvised epilogue. I choose the Bulgarian song written by Kiril Toderov which I sing the solo in with the London Bulgarian Choir. I also altered the tune of the song itself in the central minute (and got the words mixed up too!).
