An artistic people, Bulgarians hope to better the world through music and dance. Thus, it’s no wonder that Bulgarian folk singing is recognized as a national treasure. Now Let's hear a famous traditional folk song called “Dilmano Dilbero,” performed by Le Mystѐre des Voix Bulgares, or The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices. A major aspect of Bulgarian folklore is the fact that its music and song Lyrics give rise to a playful childlike joy and mood. From generation to generation, many songs expressing the most casual, funny moments from everyday life have been passed down. Our next song, “Sama Li Si Den Zhanala?” or “were You Alone in the Fields?” is one of these ancient songs. We’ll now conclude our program with a beautiful piece performed by the Bulgarian folk choir Cosmic Voices of Bulgaria, with Conductor Gancho Gavazov in collaboration with the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra.
