iTunes Review

Ever since releasing their 1975 debut, this Bulgarian women’s choir has been beguiling international audiences with their otherworldly voices and acrobatic harmonies. The country’s unique polyphonic choral tradition is full of intricate harmonic dissonances and discrete microtones—and the results here are hair-raising. With minimal accompaniment, age-old folk songs “The Bleating Lamb” and “Harvest Song from Thrace” evoke a world of remote mountain villages and shepherds calling across valleys. As for the soaring vocal solos, they will pierce your heart.

Extraordinary, But I haven't the [Bulgarian] Words to Describe It!

First off, shame on iTunes for getting the titles to the tracks 10 and 11 confused... But, if you're downloading songs from this album, clearly "Polegnala e Todora" is very easy for the western ear, but try out a couple of other unique tracks like "Kalimankou Denkou," and the mislabeled track #11 "Mir Stanke Le." They, as well as most of the other songs on this cd are heartrending and completely amazing in their honesty, connection to the past, and their cry out to the future.. But learn about these unique artists and their art form...

Bulgarian Women's singing

I can't believe I just learned about this in class-- beautiful voices and song. EXCELLENT use of chest voice

Awesome world music

I remember when I first heard this record in early 90's. While I don't understand the words sung here, it is still easy to get swept away by the amazing singing. I highly recommend this record for curious music lovers, who have outgrown their Enya records. The state choir have made several records, but I still love this one the most.
