The second programme of the series Bulgarian Musical Folklore presents the wealth of Bulgarian folk music. Apart from authentic songs from the Shoppe region, the CD also includes recordings of folk songs which have been arranged, and composers’ works based on folklore from North Bulgaria, Thrace, the Shoppe region, and the Rhodopes. They all show the natural development of folk art, which has reached us anonymously and has been continued by talented contemporary performers and composers. Their remarkable achievements reveal the whole creative method connected with the song – from its creation to its life on stage and in society.
