Contemporary musical life in Bulgaria creates new musical forms based on folklore. Thеy arouse our curiosity towards the original sources and ancient culture. The present recording of the twin sisters Zdravka and Pirinka Hristovi calls to mind the lasting values from the past. Having grown up in Bansko, a town situated at the foot of the Pirin Mountains (Southwest Bulgaria), they had the chance to pick up its specific local culture. Their musical talent took them to the Higher School of Music and Pedagogy in Plovdiv. After graduating, they become soloists of the Pirin State Ensemble for Folk Songs and Dances in Blagoevgrad. Their long-time connection with this famous ensemble ranks them among the best performers of traditional Bulgarian folk music. Together with the Pirin Ensemble, and then with Sofia Singers Folk Choir, the Hristovi sisters have toured many countries worldwide. Currently they are teachers in folk singing at the National High School of the Humanities in the town of Blagoevgrad. This programme is a kind of return back to the roots of Bulgarian folklore and presents the musical traditions of Bansko from the ancient style of singing "na atzane" (a complex vocal technique that few of today's singers have mastered), up to the two-part singing from the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. The instrumental accompaniment to the songs, done with artistic taste and a feeling of style, completes the beauty of the melodies and brings genuine pleasure to those who are ready to open their hearts to the charm of the Pirin songs.
