BALKAN TRANSIT - Yanka Rupkina - Manol Mihailov

BALKAN TRANSIT - Yanka Rupkina - Manol Mihailov
ID: GD311
Disk: 1
Type: CD
Kolekce: TraditionalPodkolekce: 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

PIRIN ENSEMBLE - PRESENTS ITS FOLK ORCHESTRA - Militse

PIRIN ENSEMBLE - PRESENTS ITS FOLK ORCHESTRA - Militse
ID: GD335
Disk: 1
Type: CD
Kolekce: TraditionalPodkolekce: 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
Petyo Krastev - conductor

Recorded in the recording studio of Radio Blagoevgrad

Anatas Naumov - Bulgarian Folk Songs and Dances

Anatas Naumov - Bulgarian Folk Songs and Dances
ID: GD333
Disk: 1
Type: CD
Kolekce: TraditionalPodkolekce: 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
ID: GD328
Disk: 1
Type: CD
Kolekce: TraditionalPodkolekce: 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.


With the participation of: Theodosii Spassov - kaval, Stoyan Yankulov - percussion, Angel Dimitrov - guitar, Bulgarian National Radio Folk Orchestra, conductor Hristofor Radanov, Peter Milanov - guitar, Kostadin Kostov - tupan, Dimitar Bogdanov - vocals; Petar Ralchev - accordion, Hristo Yotsov - percussion, Nikolai Antov - guitar, Krassimira Paurova - violin, Borislava Vassileva - violin, Gergana Chukleva - viola, Theodora Teneva - violoncello, Nedyalko Nedyalkov - kaval

BULGARIAN FOLK HERITAGE - KOSTA KOLEV, accordion

BULGARIAN FOLK HERITAGE - KOSTA KOLEV, accordion
ID: GD317
Disk: 1
Type: CD
Kolekce: TraditionalPodkolekce: Folk Music

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!

IL CANTO DI MALAVITA - LA MUSICS DELLA MAFIA

IL CANTO DI MALAVITA - LA MUSICS DELLA MAFIA
ID: ARNR0903
Disk: 1
Type: CD
Kolekce: World Music

format: Digipack with booklet 32 pages

After selling over 150,000 copies abroad, here it is at last in Italy: the controversial "cult" disc of the Mafia's music which traces the origins of the criminal tradition through a repertoire of lyrics from the past that express an old Mafia with a code of honour that no longer exists.

Mimmo Siclari is the scholar and musician who has sought out these old songs of the 'ndrangheta throughout Calabria and has been recording them since the Seventies.
This first volume of the trilogy, SONGS OF THE UNDERWORLD, produced by the Calabrian scholar and photographer, Francesco Sbano, is a collection of eighteen dramatic songs which relate stories of blood, honour and "omertà", showing the old code of the 'ndrangheta and the behaviour of the associates.

This disc is a very important historical document which encourages us to think about the roots of a phenomenon and the current situation in Calabria, as well as being a means of preserving our country's heritage of popular culture.
It also acts as a starting point for reflection upon the phenomenon of the Mafia and of the 'ndranghetta , because it is only by understanding the phenomenon, through to its most secret rites, that we can really free ourselves from it.

"Drink to your friends' health, drink up, because on the 5th December the most trendy and cool cd will be arriving in all the best music stores: "The song of the underworld" or "The music of the Mafia".
It's a real cult disc, produced with an anthropologist's flair by Francesco Sbano and Maximilian Dax: the cd has been a success in Germany and France where it has been on sale since last year and arrives in Italy in perfect time for the next Sanremo Music Festival directed by Tony Renis (...)"

Fratelli Mancuso - Cantu

Fratelli Mancuso - Cantu
ID: ARNR0902
Disk: 1
Type: CD
Kolekce: World Music

format: Digipack with booklet 28 pages

World Music, Italy, Mediterranean, sicily

Guests:
Enzo Pietropaoli, Gabriele Mirabassi, Enrico Rava, Stefano Bollani, Michele Ascolese, Rosario Iermano, Gianmaria Testa.

Cantu is finally the NEW work of the two internationally acclaimed sicilian Brothers.

All fans who enjoyed the previous album "Bella Maria" and their acting in "The Talented Mr. Ripley" an Anthony Minghella Hollywood Movie, will be certainly pleased and surprised by the sophisticated beauty of this new album.

The Mancuso Brothers crossed over apparently incompatible worlds in the last twenty years, trough the Sutera's ( their village) lost paths of their native Sicily to the remote suburbs of London.
They learned the language of the rimembrance, like the castaway learns swimming, avoiding any distractions.

They began singing professionally without actually realizing it and they are still doing it even when, left the London mists, they came back to Italy, following an ideal, essential song, crucial like a first need.

After the success of "Bella Maria " the Mancuso Brothers have become cultural Icons of their native and beloved Sicily, performing in all major Theaters and Festivals, appearing in Radio and Television with their "virtuous unconsciousness", in Italy and abroad.

Now, revisiting their long artistic journey, they expose the main themes of their musical poetry, in these beautiful, well arranged new tracks, accompanied by exceptional fellow travellers like Enzo Pietropaoli on Doublebass, Gabriele Mirabassi on clarinet, Enrico Rava on trumpet, Stefano Bollani on piano, Michele Ascolese on guitar and buzuki, Rosario Iermano on percussions and Gianmaria Testa voice.

A true musical and cultural event for all lovers of fine Italian Music and Art.
A Must for all those interested in Sicilian and Mediterranean culture.
