This is an original 1955 French recording of the Ensemble, a group of women from the mountains and plains of Bulgaria, who performed for nearly a month in Paris along with local dancers and a village orchestra. This group was the predecessor of the famed Bulgarian State Radio and Television Female Vocal Choir. These are 18 traditional Bulgarian folk songs, some accompanied, that translate to such titles as "Mother Has Decided to Marry Me Off," "Theodora Is Dozing," "The Moon Shines," "A Young Girl At Parting," "Niagol Talks to Milka," "The Bird Has Come," "Come to Supper Tonight Rada," "The Drums Roll," and "Iana Has Been Surprised in the Night." The ringing, rhythmic harmonies of this ancient music surprise and delight us, reminding us of the power and expressiveness of the human voice in expressing emotions.
