Balkan Horses Band - Contact: Part One (UBP044) CD

Balkan Horses Band - Contact: Part One (UBP044) Music CD
'During the last few decades the existence of dictatorships and totalitarian rule in the countries of the region raised confrontation in a political, economical and cultural aspect. As a result the peoples of the Balkan Peninsula separated themselves in closed systems, not knowing the cultural and public life of their neighbors. We witnessed the bursting genocide on the territory of former Yugoslavia, exercising strong destabilizing influence over the relations between different ethnic groups in the other Balkan states, as well. In spite of these somewhat artificially created clashes the Balkans continue to be a united field of culture and spirit, the most explicit expression of which we find in the sphere of arts and most of all music.

UNESCO’s proclaiming the year of 2000 as the International Year of Culture and Peace inspired AQUA STORM Music and Performing Arts Agency to be the initiator of the idea of creation of a Balkan Cultural Project in the field of Ethno and World Music. Nine of the most distinguished Ethno, Rock, Jazz, Ambience and New Age composers and performers participated in the Balkan Horses Band International orchestra.'

The Great Voices of Bulgaria - Anthology (UBP045) CD

The Great Voices of Bulgaria - Anthology (UBP045) Music CD
An anthology of the best Bulgarian choir songs sung by Women's, Men's and mixed choirs. Some tracks with accordion accompaniment.

'When you hear a Bulgarian folk song, you are astounded, chills creep up your spine, and your heart seems to skip a beat. The women from the Southeastern Balkans, regardless of their age, have an amazing vocal power, although it is more a question of vibrations and vocal technique rather than decibels. Bulgarian people understood a long time ago that the human voice is much more expressive in song than it could be in speech. Therefore, singing has been given top priority in the Bulgarian tradition of artistic expression. The perfection that lies at the base of traditional folklore took decades of hard work and was passed down from generation to generation for centuries on end. 

The Women’s Choir of Sofia is a group of professional singers which has existed for more than 35 years, directed since 1980 by Zdravko Mihaylov. It is thanks to this conductor that its repertoire has expanded to include the whole range of traditional Bulgarian music composed with modern harmony and polyphony, or based on themes taken from folk songs.
