Bulgaria and Macedonia are the only countries in Europe, whose folklore has an enormous amount of asymmetrical meters. The rhythmically irregularity, which leads to odd and changing meters is unique. In European music theory the asymmetrical meters were first noticed in 1886, when the Bulgarian music teacher Atanas Stoin published five Bulgarian melodies. The Bulgarian composer Dobri Hristov described in 1913 the whole variety of asymmetrical meters in his book „The rhythmic foundation of our folk music“. He put together a table with the Bulgarian asymmetrical meters, which was an achievement of major significance for music research. With this work, the asymmetrical meters are currently known beyond the borders of Bulgaria and Macedonia. The Hungarian composer Bela Bartok showed a particularly strong interest for Bulgarian folk music. Asymmetrical meters appeared repeatedly in his works. Bartok expressly emphasized that he had borrowed them from Bulgarian folk music. He called these asymmetrical meters also „Bulgarian meters“.
„Hoisata“ is a Bulgarian folk dance from the region Schumen, in the asymmetrical meter 9/16 (9/16=2+2+2+3/16). The Bulgarian word „Hoisa“ means round dance, and also jump, shake oneself. The dance is fast and happy, with vigorous jumps. It is danced by mixed pairs of a man and a woman. The Bulgarian revolutionist Rakowski wrote, that in his time (middle of the 19th century) the folk dance „Hoisata“ was very widespread and popular in Bulgaria.
