Vračenica (vrač = witch doctor) is a composition based on Račenica - a dance form from Macedonia and Bulgaria. Račenica is used to indicate irregular 7-count rhythm of two beats of two counts followed by one beat of three counts. The term comes from the Bulgarian root words for hand: "râka" (singular) or râce (plural), and it literally means small handkerchief.
