KALINKA ZGUROVA - Strandja Folk Songs

KALINKA ZGUROVA - Strandja Folk Songs
ID: GD338
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Kolektion: TraditionalSubkolektion: Folk Music

Kalinka Zgurova started singing on stage when she was only 11 years old. She gained distinction when she was 15 at the First National Singing Competition in the village of Gramatikovo, Bulgaria, in 1960. Since then she has been soloist in some of the most renowned Bulgarian folk formations: the Bulgarian National Radio Folk Dances Ensemble, Pirin Ensemble - Blagoevgrad, Zagore Ensemble - Stara Zagora. She is founder of the Zornitsa vocal Trio and has performed with it songs from different parts of Bulgaria specially arranged for the chamber trio. Kalinka Zgurova’s greatest success, however, is connected with The Mystery of Bulgarian Voices Choir.
She has recorded hundreds of songs for the Bulgarian National Radio, the Bulgarian National TV, etc. Aiming to enlarge her repertoire, she has always tried to discover authentic songs from her native Strandja region. Being very well acquainted with the original folklore, she is also very successful as a composer. The songs composed by her continue the tradition of her nameless predecessors and are easily integrated into every folk programme. A part of them have been included in this release and they can be inferred only by the information in the booklet.
Many performers of folk songs today look for ways of making folklore sound more up-to-date, but a few of them are successful. Kalinka Zgurova is very careful with regard to the “electronic” arrangements. In spite of their “modern apparel”, her songs are true to the original source.

Kolektion: TraditionalSubkolektion: Folk Music

A female vocal group from the village of Beli Iskar, Samokov Municipality

Choir leader: Lyudmila Stoikova

Recorded at the Library of the Stoine Angelov Cultural Center, the village of Beli Iskar, Samokov Municipality

11 women from the village of Beli Iskar, Samokov Municipality have recorded 21 authentic songs the way they remember them from their mothers and grand-mothers. The village is a part of the big folklore region of West Bulgaria, which is characterized by the two-part singing. The famous researcher of Bulgarian folklore Vassil Stoin collected 1115 songs from this region (1935). He even hinted that the Bulgarian two-part singing precedes and forms the base of the European multi-part singing style. A part of these songs are no longer performed today. But what has been preserved gives a clear idea of how the music had accompanied all these moments of the lives of our ancestors. By listening to these songs we can follow the calendar year and the traditions of the people of this region.
These are songs which are performed at weddings, working-bees, at the village dance, at the dining table, at harvest, on the eve of St. Basil’s Day, during berry-picking, and in the field. The recording for this CD has an interesting story behind it. A team of ecology adherents from the USA visited Bulgaria in 2003 to support nature conservation in Rila National Park. They heard the women of Beli Iskar and were fascinated by their authentic singing. The team leader proposed sponsorship for a studio release and thus the preparation of the group began. At that time some of the women didn’t sing for various reasons, but a group of 11 was formed and they revived the traditional songs of the village. Thus, with the financial support of the US Norbert H. Hardner Foundation, these songs will take us back to our roots.

Kolektion: TraditionalSubkolektion: Folk Music

Bulgarian folk music has many friends worldwide. They form groups and learn Bulgarian songs and dances. Gega New Music House has already presented one of them - “Topolovo” Orchestra from France (GD 148). We continue this initiative by releasing a CD of yet another group - BALKAN TRANSIT, Denmark The group was formed in 1988 in Aarhus. Its five musicians learn Bulgarian songs and melodies with great love and enthusiasm. They are assisted in their work by famous Bulgarian musicians. They especially appreciate their collaboration with Yanka Rupkina, Manol Mihailov and the kaval player Stoyan Velichkov. This program is a result of their cooperation. The musicians of the group are well acquainted with Bulgarian folklore and their arrangements are extremely interesting. What they strive for when they perform is not only to preserve the folk atmosphere, but also to add their own experience and emotion. Simon Leunbach’s songs based on traditional texts are especially interesting in this respect. Being familiar with Bulgarian language and Bulgarian music, he has succeeded in creating amazing melodies. The participation of the well-known singers Yanka Rupkina and Manol Mihailov bring an authentic feeling to the songs, in spite of the fact that a part of them are author’s songs. Yanka Rupkina is also the composer of some of the songs and this is only natural: in folk tradition, the best performers are also the composers of new songs and melodies. The program of BALKAN TRANSIT represents a new way of interpreting traditional Bulgarian music. The musicians themselves define it as a “blend of this love (towards Bulgarian folk music), our experience over the years, and our roots in Nordic and Western musical traditions”.

BALKAN TRANSIT consists of: Gunner Byskov - E-bass, backing vocal; Poul Berg - tambura; Lotte Kielberg - accordion, backing vocal; Bjarne A. Kofoed - vocal, backing vocal, tupan, tambourine, percussion; Simon Leunbach - kaval, backing vocal.

Recorded in 2004-2006 at Future Force Audio, Viby J., Denmark, and Breve Studio, Sofia, Bulgaria

Kolektion: TraditionalSubkolektion: Folk Music

During the middle of the 20th century, a number of ensembles for folk songs and dances were founded in many towns of Bulgaria. Their main purpose was to discover and popularize the Bulgarian folk heritage.
Ever since it was founded Pirin Ensemble - Blagoevgrad (1954) has made a reputation with its original program and remarkable stage performance. Today, more that 50 years later, Pirin is still one of the leading folk ensembles in Bulgaria. It has performed before more that 6 million people at home and abroad and in 60 countries in all continents of the world. The review published in the Events newspaper (Hayward, USA) is indicative of the art of the ensemble: “The abundant splendor of Pirin - the Bulgarian folk ensemble, enthralled the hearts of the audience in Europe, Africa and Asia, and now in America, during its glorious triumphant tour. Presenting a country’s picturesque heritage - with its thrilling choreography, breathtaking songs and beautiful costumes, Pirin created a theatrical performance, which is an expression of the charm and wonder of Bulgaria.”
The ensemble has received many awards such as the Golden Record in Nashville in 1982, the Grammy Award for participation in the second album of Marcel Cellier Le Mystere des Voix Bulgares in 1990, awards from the International Festivals in Carthage (1965), etc. The great success of the ensemble is mainly due to Prof. Kiril Stefanov - Chief Artistic Director and conductor of the ensemble from 1956 to 2005, a composer, conductor, and a brilliant manager. After him the management of the ensemble was undertaken by young and ambitions musicians, who succeeded in preserving its popularity - the Chief Artistic Director Dimitar Hristov and the conductor of the orchestra Petyo Krastev.
The ensemble’s folk orchestra is just as famous as its choir and dance formation. Its participation in the ensemble’s productions is of utmost importance not only when it performs as a part of the ensemble, but also when it gives concerts on its own. This makes its repertoire very rich and varied. Together with the tunes and horos characteristic of the Pirin folk region, it also often plays folk music from the Thracian region, the Shoppe region, Northern Bulgaria and other regions of the country.


Soloists: Ilia Ganev - tambura, Ivan Iliev - gaida, Gerasim Kovachev - kaval, Miroslav Yugovski - gadulka

Anatas Naumov - Bulgarian Folk Songs and Dances

Anatas Naumov - Bulgarian Folk Songs and Dances
ID: GD333
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Kolektion: TraditionalSubkolektion: Folk Music

Folk songs arrangements became very popular in Bulgaria after the 50s of the last century. A great number of folk songs and dances ensembles were founded then and many of the young composers saw this as an opportunity to write songs for their repertoire. This generation of authors became real classics in the folk genre. Anastas Naumov is one of them. We have already presented the music of Stefan Kanev (GD 298) and Kosta Kolev (GD 317). With the present release of works by Anastas Naumov we continue the Bulgarian Folk Heritage series.
After graduating from the Prof. Pancho Vladigerov National Academy of Music, Anastas Naumov devoted himself to folk music. For many years he was Head of the Folk Music Section at the Bulgarian National Radio - during this period a great part of the golden collection of radio recordings were made. Anastas Naumov is also a prolific composer. His works are in the repertoire of all folk ensembles in Bulgaria and almost all folk performers have worked with him. The composer is very well acquainted with the specific features of the folk regions as well as with the abilities of the performers. For this reason, his songs and instrumental melodies sound very close to the original. His wide professional experience and original talent are especially evident in the folk-based works. It is difficult to tell apart his own folk works from his arranged pieces. They all emanate the style and unique atmosphere of folk art.

Performers: Yanka Rupkina, Olga Borissova, Maria Voinova, Nikola Atanassov, choir and orchestra of the Bulgarian National Radio Folk Songs Ensemble, Dobroudja Ensemble, Philip Koutev Ensemble, choir of the Plovdiv Academy of Music, Dance and Fine Arts, orchestra of Dunav Ensemble, Bulgarian National Radio Symphony Orchestra, Stefan Mutafchiev, Dobrin Panayotov, Dimitar Dinev, Kostadin Buradjiev, Georgi Genov, Maria Leshkova, Gencho Genchev, Stefan Dragostinov, Krassimir Kyurkchiisky, Vassilka Spassova

PLETENITSA - PEYO PEEV, gadulka

PLETENITSA - PEYO PEEV, gadulka

CDs: 1
Type: CD
Kolektion: TraditionalSubkolektion: Folk Music

For centuries the gadulka has been among the most favourite instruments in Bulgaria. While in the past it was used only in some folk regions, today it is widely popular throughout the country. Since the middle of the 20th century, it has been invariably included in the folk music orchestras in all regions of Bulgaria. This brought about a change in the musical concept of the folk musicians. They began to unite melodies and techniques characteristic for various folk regions or other genres. They managed to prove that even though the gadulka is a more primitive instrument, it can still compete technically with the classical string instruments.
Peyo Peeev is among the most renowned young gadulka players. Born and brought up in the heart of Trakia (Southern Bulgaria), the musician’s first interest in music was connected with the children’s ensemble Zagorche, then he studied at the Philip Koutev Secondary School of Music in the town of Kotel (1989-1994) and the Academy of Music, Dance and Fine Arts in Plovdiv (1994-1998). His professional career began in the Philip Koutev State Ensemble of Folk Songs and Dances. After that he participated in the world-famous dance show Riverdance (1999-2000) and since 2000 he has been soloist in the Bulgarian National Radio Folk Music Orchestra. Peyo Peev has won twice the “Golden gadulka” prize named after the famous gadulka player Yanko Petrov (1996 and 1997), he participated in the world tour of the Mystery of Bulgarian Voices Choir in Hong Kong (1997) and is one of the founders of Academica formation (1998).
He gives concerts actively and participates in different projects with the world-famous musician Theodosii Spassov and the virtuoso players Petar Ralchev, Stoyan Yankulov, etc. These musicians also participate in the present release. Peyo Peev has also performed with different groups throughout Europe, the USA, Japan, and has made a lot of recordings.
The ten pieces included in this release are unique in their style and characterise his musical concept and creative imagination. They are real jewels, which skilfully combine both the traditional and contemporary approach.

MLADEN KOYNAROV - Voice of the Rhodopes

MLADEN KOYNAROV - Voice of the Rhodopes
ID: GD321
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Kolektion: Vocal CollectionSubkolektion: Folk Music

The Rhodope Mountains has been the birth place of many Bulgarian singers and musicians. The specific songs of the region and the unusual pentatonic, which are not characteristic for other folk regions in the country, as well as the typical kaba (low-tone) gaida make the music of the Rhodopes a unique sound palette. Mladen Koynarov’s songs introduce an additional richness to its colours.
Born in the heart of the Rhodope Mountains, in the village of Oryahovets in the Smolyan district, Mladen Koynarov began his artistic career as a soloist in a concert group (1966), and in 1970 he won a position in the “Rhodopa” State Ensemble for Folk Songs and Dances in Smolyan. To this day he is a soloist with this ensemble.
He has personally uncovered and learned over 350 folk songs of the central Rhodopes, some of which were released on LPs. He has also recorded over 70 songs for Bulgarian National Radio and participated on more than 140 television programs. In 1978 he received the second prize in the Prix de Folklore competition of Radio Bratislava, and he is also the recipient of the Silver Lyre (1995) and Golden Lyre (1998) awards of the Union of Bulgarian Music and Dance Professionals.
The singer passes his experience and skill on to the young people. In 2000 he founded a school for folk singing in Smolayn. His students are laureates of regional and national competitions and festivals.

The name of Kosta Kolev (b. 1921) is emblematic of Bulgarian folk music!
He is brilliant in all three fields he engages in - as an accordionist, composer and conductor. Bulgarian traditional culture wouldn’t have been the same today without his unique arrangements and original works, his brilliant accordion performances and his wide scope of conducting work. Being brought up in a family of folk musicians, he started playing music at a very early age. Besides mastering the accordion, Kosta Kolev also plays almost all wind instruments. This has helped him a lot in his work as a composer.
His concerts as an accordionist throughout Bulgaria are legendary. He worked with all famous performers in the past: Atanaska Todorova, Gyurgya Pindzhurova, Boris Mashalov, Mita Stoycheva and many others. The concerts they gave always turned into real festivities!
In 1949 Kosta Kolev started working at Radio Sofia as a director of a folk orchestra. He wrote down songs in notes, arranged folk songs and tunes, accompanied live performances. In 1954 he took up the leadership of the orchestra of the Bulgarian National Radio Folk Songs Ensemble and soon it became a leading ensemble in Bulgaria. Kosta Kolev continuously noted down songs, arranged folk music, composed pieces, taught the musicians how to read music, introduced new instruments in the orchestra, made innovations in the gadulka playing…
Many folk artists’ first successful performances are due to his help. All singers and musicians have at least one arranged piece by Kosta Kolev in their repertoire. He is still sought after by the orchestra of the Bulgarian National Radio and by many performers and ensembles.
Kosta Kolev has registered and wrote down in notes over 10 000 folk songs and tunes. He has arranged and written more than 6 000 songs and pieces, taken part in over 5 000 concerts in Bulgaria and throughout the world, and captivated the audience in Romania, Germany, France, Egypt, Austria, Italy, Switzerland…
Kosta Kolev is a model of a musician with a classical music education (he graduated the Bulgarian Academy of Music under Prof. Georgi Dimitrov and Prof. Parashkev Hadjiev), who has remained true to his native origin and has brilliantly combined his knowledge and talent with the centuries-old experience of the folk tradition. He is a true inheritor of the best folk traditions!
