Slavei means "nightingale" in Bulgarian language and we understand the choice of this word when we listen to these great voices that combine with clarity and emotion and strength of Bulgarian tradition. The female quartet are former soloists of the Philippe Koutev famous ensembles : Mysteries of Bulgarian Voices and Angelite. Their repertoire comes from orthodox religious songs from Eastern Europe (usually only sung by men), and from traditional secular songs. Four great women, four magnificent voices, a perfect skill of a difficult and specific vocal technique, a unique repertoire as it takes in traditional secular songs, but also in orthodox songs from XIVe to XXe century, usually dedicated to men. To hear these two genres, sung by divine voices, side by side, is a profoundly moving and fascinating experience.
