Other info:

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
