BULGARIAN FOLK DANCES

BULGARIAN FOLK DANCES
ID: GD107
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Traditional

In the Bulgarian folk tradition instrumental music performs a specific function - to accompany the horo dances played on Sundays or at public holidays in the village square. Each region in Bulgaria has its own preferences for the specific instruments and characteristic dances. In Dobroudja, for example, the typical horo dances Opas, Sborenka, Ruka, Tropanka, etc. are accompanied on kopanka, gaida (bagpipe), and in more recent times, by three concertina-, kopanka- and bagpipe-players. In the Pirin Mountains region the heavy horo dancing used to be accompanied on tamburas, tarambukas, or zurnas (in the southernmost parts). In Thrace the favourite instrument is the kaval.

PIRIN FOLK SONGS-VESSELA AND LYUBEN BOJKOV

PIRIN FOLK SONGS-VESSELA AND LYUBEN BOJKOV
ID: GD186
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Traditional
Subcollection: Folk Music

The Vessela and Lyuben Bojkov duet made their first recordings in the 1980s and quickly won recognition. Up to that time Vessela grew up with her father's songs. (Lyuben Bojkov is a famous folk singer who enjoys an active concert career and has numerous recordings.) The beautiful voices of both father and daughter and their excellent ensemble performance rank them among the leading Bulgarian folk singers. Their repertoire ranges from lyrical love and sad immigrant songs to merry everyday tunes and songs performed at the table. The release features some of their most popular songs which are the most eloquent illustration of the combination between rhythm and metre from the authentic Pirin folk music and the European melodies and harmony. This is what turns the music of Pirin Macedonia into a bridge thrown between the distant past and the present day, between the different folk regions in Bulgaria.

GALINA DURMUSHLIYSKA - VOICE OF DOBRUDJA

GALINA DURMUSHLIYSKA - VOICE OF DOBRUDJA
ID: GD227
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Vocal Collection
Subcollection: Folk Music

Dobrudja is a unique folk region that has produced songs preserved by the Bulgarians beyond the boundaries of the country, together with local tunes which have inevitably been influenced by the neighbouring folk regions. This variety of layers has created the specific character of the Dobrudja music and dance art. Rarely, however, do folk-music lovers have a chance to experience its beauty the way it is presented by Galina Durmushliyska, with exquisiteness and style. She began singing at an early age and was trained in the school of the Dobrudja Ensemble in the town of Dobrich. Having made numerous recordings for the Bulgarian National Radio, the singer does not limit herself to the already familiar songs but rather continues exploring little known folk samples, still existing in the small Dobrudja villages. Some of these have been included in this release "Voice of Dobrudja". Together with songs from North and South Dobrudja (North Dobrudja is now in the territory of Romania), the singer has included in her programme songs from Bessarabia and a tune which Mita Stoicheva, the famous folk singer, never recorded. The booklet notes to the release contain detailed information about them and indications to the exact origination of the songs, something that is seldom done in similar editions. Durmushliyska performs these songs with gratitude and love for the people from whom she has inherited them, thus creating real gems of vocal folk art.

Accompanied by: Theodosii Spassov (kaval), Georgi Petrov (gadulka), Bulgarian National Radio Folk Orchestra

FOLK DANCES FROM NORTH BULGARIA - Janko SHELYAZKOV, accordion

FOLK DANCES FROM NORTH BULGARIA - Janko SHELYAZKOV, accordion
ID: GD268
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Traditional
Subcollection: Folk Music

North Bulgaria has a fascinating folk music, which has been influenced by the neighbouring folk regions and the local culture. Pure folk elements from neighbouring regions often "cross" the provisory boundaries and create curious interrelations with the local traditional culture. The recordings of accordionist Yanko Zhelyazkov included in this release serve as an eloquent illustration of these interrelations. Born in 1945, he comes from the village of Brest, Pleven District, situated by the Danube River. His interest for the accordion was inherited from his father and his uncle, who were both famous accordionists. The greater part of his professional experience (of over 40 years) is connected with the Severnyashki (Northern) Ensemble for Folk Songs and Dances - Pleven. Along with his work in the ensemble, he dedicates a great part of his time and efforts to working with amateur choirs and orchestras. This helps him enrich his own repertoire with interesting songs and instrumental melodies from his native region. The release includes his most remarkable recordings of horo dances and rachenitsa, characteristic of North Bulgaria.

MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS IN BULGARIA - Rumen SIRAKOV, tambura

MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS IN BULGARIA - Rumen SIRAKOV, tambura
ID: GD278
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Traditional
Subcollection: Folk Music

This is the first programme of the series MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS IN BULGARIA that Gega New begins to release. It will feature all instruments used in Bulgarian folk practice (authentic as well as the so-called 'modern' ones). The present release presents the tambura. The instrument was carried to Bulgaria in the 7th century. It still exists in Asia (Uzbekistan, Tadjikistan, etc.) under various names and was widely-known on the Balkans by the name "bulgaria" ("bugaria"). The tambura was used in almost all parts of Bulgaria up to the end of the 20th century. Today it is characteristic mainly of the Pirin folk region, though it takes significant part in the ensembles and instrumental groups as an accompanying folk instrument, especially during the second part of the 20th century, when the characteristic tambura performing style was formed.
The musician who proved that the tambura is of equal worth with the other folk instruments is Rumen Sirakov. Being the son of the famous folk singer Pavel Sirakov, it was natural that Rumen should begin to play folk music: first he started playing the whistle, then the trumpet and the clarinet. Simultaneously, he graduated from the school of classical guitar and this provoked his interest to the tambura, making him the best performer of this instrument. At 17 he began playing in the Bulgarian National Radio Folk Songs Ensemble. Then, together with the prominent kaval-player Stoyan Velichkov and the gadulka-player Mihail Marinov, founded the Trakiiska Troika. He has made a number of recordings for the Bulgarian National Radio, given concerts throughout Bulgaria, in England, the USA, Australia, etc. He also worked with Trio Bulgarka, Cate Bush, and had personal artistic contacts with George Harrison and Eric Clapton, the world-known guitarist. Rumen Sirakov's art has been highly appreciated at prestigious international forums. His teaching career is also of great significance and his students are among the best tambura-players. Recently, he marked the 40th anniversary of his creative activity. His contribution as a performer and founder of the Bulgarian school of tambura performance is undeniable. For this reason Gega New begins the musical instruments series with such a renowned and original musician.

MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS IN BULGARIA - Wind Orchestra

MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS IN BULGARIA - Wind Orchestra
ID: GD299
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Brass Collection
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

After featuring the tambura, zourna and gaida instruments (GD 278, GD 276, GD 106), the series continues with presenting horos and ruchenitsa for wind orchestra. Having originated after the liberation of the Bulgarian people from the rule of the Ottoman Empire (1878), today they have become a necessary part of all festive celebrations in Bulgaria.
The intense development of music and performance art during the first years of independence in Bulgaria lead to the creation of professional symphonic, opera and chamber ensembles. Together with them the first military wind orchestras were formed. Their repertoire consists of marches, polkas, overtures, etc., as well as horo music and medleys of folk songs. A large number of composers at that time wrote folk-based music for wind orchestras. The most talented composer of such music was Diko Iliev. After his participation in the Balkan War and the First World War, he began composing horos, which are still being loved by the Bulgarian people. From 1931 Diko Iliev played the baritone in the newly-founded wind orchestra in Oryahovo and thus he put the beginning of one of his most intense periods of creative activity. Iliev had the happy fate to become an inseparable part of the Bulgarian urban musical folklore. After him other well-trained musicians continued this trend. Today the wind orchestra is an intrinsic part of the Bulgarian folk music culture.
