(I could do without the last song – it feels like a sop to the American audience, kind of a performing dog trick.)
The Bulgarian State Television Female Vocal Choir had been around for decades, but in the late 1980s, after two years of touring in Europe and America, they achieved widespread and well-deserved fame when their album, “Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares,” won a Grammy and their concert tour sold out. I was lucky enough to get tickets to their show in Berkeley – and it remains one of the best concert experiences of my life. Their recordings are really enjoyable, but they fail to convey the power of these voices live.
If you liked these, there are more videos available through YouTube – but you should probably avoid any “remix” versions or bits from films.
