Този ден е посветен на смъртта на Божията майка или на успението ѝ. Според преданието на този ден апостолите се събрали от местата, където проповядвали, за да се простят със Света Богородица и да погребат пречистото ѝ тяло.

  • Customs Took My Risha

    4:26

    Title explains why I'm using an ID card instead of a plastic risha (plectrum). I've noticed most music featuring oud is in uncommon (read: not 4/4) time signatures, like 7/8/, 9/8, and 10/8. Hopefully, I'll be able to improve my internalization of complex meters. I almost have 11/8 down. 11/8 is used in Balkan music, such as the Bulgarian kopanitsa. Either way, for guitarists looking to expand their repertoire, the Egyptian oud (the oud I'm playing here) is an interesting addition and easy to learn (if a person is good at guitar). My threshold for being able to gig with an instrument is whether or not my ability on said instrument can get me free drinks. The non-monentary hierarchy, in order of least to greatest, goes as such: getting cigarettes in exchange for a song, getting the attention of the opposite gender (or same gender, no judgement here) in exchange for a song, getting drinks in exchange for a song, and getting a dinner in exchange for music. I have gotten both free drinks and past foreign airport security in exchange for a song on oud. For having been at it for only 5 weeks, I consider that to be great (and refreshing) progress. Either way, the oud (in this case, the Egyptian oud tuned GADGC) is a worthwhile addition to a gigging guitarist's repertoire/ arsenal and can add an exotic flavor to a set list. Chord melodies, unfortunately are even more difficult on the Egyptian oud than on the electric bass (in my opinion). However, certain techniques on oud are much more effective than on bass, or in some cases, guitar. These include: drone notes, octaves, fifths, fourths, pedal notes, and even single note lines. Even without harmonic diversity, the oud can hold its on as a solo instrument. Also, it's pretty metal. Seriously- tremolo pickling and riffing on harmonic minor modes? simply brutal.

    Bulgarian Voices Angelite - Triptih (Three Customs) - Voices of Life
    arr. Nikolay Kaufman
    Amazon.com's Best of 2000
    What makes this recording so special is that it's the choir's first opportunity to showcase their virtuoso vocals in a finely recorded setting where solos rebound in sorrowful echoes and the ethereal power of the 20 women resounds. The new songs from Eddie Jobson melt into the Bulgarian folk tradition seamlessly and though a complex melancholy permeates the album, Voices of Life ends up being just what its title says. --Karen K. Hugg

    Amazon.com
    After listening to the Bulgarian Women's Choir one might think Bulgaria is the most wondrous country on the planet. And in some ways it is. Geographically it lies where the origins of the Western musical scale developed, but the music made there was isolated for centuries after the Eastern Orthodox Church split from the Roman Catholic Church. The result is a choral ensemble such as BWC, whose sound is born somewhere between the medieval Byzantine church and the Eastern European mountains. While the vocals are piercing and plaintive, they're also heavenly and childlike, and this is the complex beauty of the Bulgarian Women's Choir.

    Recorded in 1999 for a forthcoming documentary, Voices of Life beautifully displays the ensemble's bold harmonics, wavering tonality, and yodel-like whooping. The effect is chilling when the pitch drastically fluctuates under their masterful throat control, as on Pilentze Pee, or when the sorrow explodes forth via a soloist, as on Kalimanko Denko. Unlike the collaboration with Africa's Ray Lema or the electronic dance treatment of From Bulgaria with Love, this collaboration with writer-producer Eddie Jobson is not a miss. In fact, it's a direct hit, thanks to Jobson's deep understanding of and respect for this style of Bulgarian music. Listen, and be amazed. --Karen K. Hugg

    Bulgarian Fund for Women, definitely, yay for women. An inspiring charity we visited in Bulgaria that raises funds and gives grants to local non-governmental organisations (NGO's) working to advance women’s and girls’ rights, eliminate gender stereotypes and achieve gender equality in all spheres of life. Take a look at the video and see for yourselves the women we met dedicating their time and effort in building a world free of discrimination and inequality. It is so important that all girls and women have equal opportunities and are given the same choices as everyone else.

    1:01

    The Folk Dance Club Folklore Society - Gabrovo, Bulgaria is a community created by necessity for communication through dance. Led by the need for personal creativity, preservation and popularization of traditional Bulgarian culture, we study the best examples of the great variety of Bulgarian folklore dance.

    The folklore society has gained recognition and has become an integral part of the cultural outlook, the artistic appearance and the cultural identity of our city.

    Dances and costumes from all the ethnographical regions of Bulgaria are included in the repertoire of the “Folklore society”. The demonstration of local folklore customs is particularly attractive.
    The dancers and their choreographer are motivated to continue their activities in the future, following the lines of the established traditions. We shall continue to search new stages to express our talents and abilities, and shall keep future generations vividly interested in the treasure box, called “Bulgarian folklore”.

    ------------------

    The Bulgarian choir waves its magic. They produce sounds of the most peculiar vocal timbre, almost as if it was not produced by the human vocal apparatus at all but by an instrument from some foreign corner of the world. They glissando, shout and embellish,
    combine crazy rhythms, stack their voices to form audacious chords. And suddenly the folklore clich... cracks. Archaic sound-worlds from far-distant times are what one listener thinks he has heard, another a - marriage of avant-garde and the medieval. Both are talking about the same unique choir of twenty women: The Bulgarian Voices - Angelite.
    ----------

    NEW CD: »ANGELINA« JARO 4310-2
    The album presents an opportunity for professional ethno-music speculations and analysis but the main idea is to share with the listeners the pleasure of the music. Each song brings its own touch or colour to the kaleidoscopic picture, which reveals the musical atmosphere and temperament of the Bulgarian folklore. The variety of performances highlights the remarkable singing qualities of the 20 singers -- a polyphonic instrument in the hands of their conductor and soloists -- successors
    of ancient art of singing. One of the unifying musical elements in this project is the rhythm. The Bulgarian folkmusic is famous for the abundance of irregular, asymmetric measures -- dubbed by Bela Bartok the Bulgarian rhythm.

    Many of the songs on the album are built on such a meter and rhythm base. The sound of the drum in Bulgaria is a symbol of the feast and of dancing horo (round chain dance). We can hear it in some of the authors' arrangements, performed by one of the best Bulgarian percussionists -- Stoyan Yankulov.

    In the mosaic structure of the program cohabit contrasting in their characteristics -- solo, choral and in some of them instrumental accompaniment. The folklore, ancient and modern, is present with elegant balance between tradition and modern approach. Choir and soloists pursue strictly the respective region, local style and musical dialects. They recreate the patterns of the old musical folklore in a mode close to the old traditions from the different regions.

    A musical surprise in this album is a song taken from the folklore of an ethnic group Karakachani (nomad mountain shepherds) who live for ages in Bulgaria. The singer, performing the song is one of them by birth.The traditional melody is harmonized by instrumental accompaniment. The compositions of Zdravko Manolov Tapan bie and Georgi Petkov Ochi, ochi, Gaidine sviriat, show the individual approach of the authors of closeness or remoteness to the original traditional song. Erke, mori, Erke - a traditional song from the Shope region is arranged by Georgy Petkov into multi-voice choral version with perceptible Shope discordance. The drums emphasize complex rhythmic formulas and fragmentation into irregular measure of 12/16.

    Within the wealth of colors in the program, two songs stand out for their styles -- they are the works of Theodosii Spassov, recognized as the best kaval player in the world. His two songs in the program, written specially for this project, reflect his view of the world -- concentrated, playful, noble, heart-felt and natural.

    The remarkable Bulgarian composer Ivan Spassov uses in his compositions aleatory technique with overlapped polyphonic patterns.
    Creatively developed, from the roots of the traditional song Leilinko, kuzum pilianze springs a creatively developed musical work with free, irregular harmony and soft sonority. This is one of the last songs of Ivan Spassov, written at the end of his path of life, specifically for The Bulgarian Voices - Angelite. The music reveals the philosophy of the author relating to the universe and eternity.

    The last song of the album is the end of a journey, which starts in the distant past and ends in our days. A journey in which one can experience the power of the folk art, feel the bond between generations and learn about the millenary Bulgarian music history.
