The Enchantment of Bulgarian Voices
The a cappella
vocal music of Bulgarian women is one of the world’s great cultural
treasures. A first-time encounter with it takes your breath away. The
sweet power, bracing harmonies, and stark vigor that bring these pure
touching songs and sweeping epics to life are visceral. Vlada Tomova’s art come straight from the celebrated tradition of Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares,
which captivated global music lovers a couple of decades back. Passion,
fiery Balkan temperament, disarming simplicity, searing pain of the
soul, spontaneous harmonic improvisation, shattering intimacy with the
core of life... all of these spring to brilliant-hued life in Bulgaria’s
living singing tradition. The bright-hued national costumes of these
brilliant women will glow in late afternoon April light.
Not to miss!
