As a result of the cultural policy of the state after1944 the folk art was turned into powerful instrument for influence and propaganda of the socialist state. On the other hand, the art products of these ensembles are connected with the processes related to the transformation and modernization of the folklore heritage. In this aspect the contribution and the approaches of Kiril Stefanov as art director of the ensemble “Pirin” to the interpretation of folk materials are analyzed. The periodization of the artistic life of ensemble “Pirin” is done and the conditions for the transformation of the folk tradition into global one are outlined.
