Yambol's Pop Folk Singer Elena Yankova Remembered



Just south of Yambol city centre I saw a plaque for Elena Yankova who lived between the years 1825 - 1901. The road was named after her and this sparked my curiosity - I found out from local knowledge that she was a Yambol folk singer who had a big repertoire of songs which were published by her son Kolev. The over 200 songs were published posthumously some 12 years after her death. I find it so heart-warming that these Yambol folk remembered in this way. I assume she lived in this street all those years ago.
