The present programme is the first of a series of releases initiated by Gega New with the ambition to reveal the talent of some of Bulgaria's most famous folk musicians. Without aiming to go in chronological order, Gega New intends to present different folk artists and composers who have marked a path in the development of this genre of music. The first релеасе features recordings of Petko Radev, clarinet, and Petko Dachev, accordion.
Petko Radev founded the Bulgarian National Radio Folk Orchestra in the 1970s. It made an immediate impression on listeners with its new musical sound, new type of improvisations and fascinating introductions. Even though he has an academic musical background, having graduated from the Bulgarian Academy of Music, Petko Radev applies the best devices of the Thracian instrumental tradition in his performing. Making use of his profound classical training, he transfers to the studio and stage the brilliant and sophisticated sound, combined with his free stylistic improvisations, which he has inherited from virtuoso musicians from his childhood. During the years when he plays and records folk music he is also a teacher in the Sofia Academy of Music. Many folk musicians learn from his talent and he himself is the creator of a school for interpreting of Bulgarian folklore. After working for 11 years as first clarinetist in the Milan La Scala, he came back to Bulgaria but never returned to folk music as a performer. Currently he has dedicated his life entirely to classical music and to his students. Nevertheless, his wide experience still makes him an important consultant to young musicians, and he can often be seen at all folk festivals and singing competitions.
Another famous musician who has played in the folk orchestra of the Bulgarian National Radio since its very creation is the accordionist Petko Dachev. While the Thracian wedding bands of the 1960s and 1970s abounded in perfect clarinetists, the accordion still had a subordinate place and the players used to keep to simpler improvisations. This is what makes Petko Dachev's vast creative method so prominent. In his improvisations he enriched the Strandja vocal mode of playing with a characteristic ornamental strain and in this way created a new Strandja-Thracian style, which quickly found its followers and has been widely exploited by musicians recently.
By establishing a new orchestra, Petko Radev and Petko Dachev attained a new mode in the interpretation of Bulgarian music folklore, which responds to the creative requirements of a whole generation of folk musicians. All renowned singers and instrumentalists have made recordings with them. This makes this programme so rich and various, featuring solo performances of artists, loved by the audience.

In its historical development Bulgaria has undergone many vicissitudes. Great masses of people settled to live on its territory, accepting the traditions of the local people and at the same time influencing their way of life and culture. This resulted in the appearance of specific regions in the country with their own unique, diverse and multi-layered traditions. A region of such specific nature is the northeastern part of the country. Tracing the art of its singers and instrumentalists, we can draw a picture of the musical and folk traditions of the area.
Sonya Kancheva is a renowned singer from Northern Bulgaria and boasts of a beautiful voice and an exceptional repertoire. She has collected and recorded hundreds of songs from her native place which illustrate to a great extent the interaction of local and adopted musical culture.
Since 1951, when she made her first recordings with Radio Sofia, she has recorded over 270 songs, and there are about 500 more in her personal archives. For many years she has been visiting a great number of villages in this region and the songs she collected from there seem to live a new live of their own with her performance. Sonya Kancheva is the first singer from the region of Varna who has revealed to the listeners the fascinating folklore of Northern Bulgaria. She is still a much favoured performer by people of different ages and an example for the younger folk singers.

The 1950s marked the beginning of a renewal of Bulgarian folk art. Many national and local folk art festivals were founded at that time. Radio Sofia and the regional radio stations tried to attract talented singers and musicians for their programmes. For many of those people of different professions folk music became a destiny. One of the newly found talents of that time was the Dobroudja singer Dobra Savova. She was born in the village of Koriten, Dobroudja region and inherited the singing talent of her family. Her gift was appreciated well beyond the boundaries of her village when she was noticed by music specialists at a folk art festival. This set the beginning of her professional career and today we always connect the Dobroudja region with her songs. These are songs of her family and her village. People started listening to them on Radio Varna, at concerts, on the programmes of Radio Sofia. She has made numerous recordings, which will pass on to future generations her unique singing talent and authentic Dobroudja vocal style. The present programme presents a part of them. It begins with the song "Esen se zaesenyava", which has brought her popularity and the never-fading love of her listeners.
