As we recently announced, we have the date for the concert of the masterful Lisa Gerrard and her latest project with a female choir from neighboring Bulgaria – The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices!
October 8, 2019 for an unforgettable experience.
Originally from Irish immigrants, Lisa Gerrard was born and still lives in Australia, where she started her career nearly 40 years ago. The experimental post punk music scene of the late 70s in Melbourne merges Lisa with Brendan Perry. Back in 1981 the duo created a unique project called Dead Can Dance, which exists to this day with several creative breaks. Dead Can Dance is an authentic musical composition that unites two vocals that with their power and color, paint the beginning/end of the world.
The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices (Le Mystere des Voix Bulgares) Female Vocal Choir known in the past as The Bulgarian State Television Female Vocal Choir is an ensemble of rare artistic gift and enormous popular appeal. The choir truly represents one of the most amazing success stories in music. Created in the early 1950’s the choir’s first mission was to record authentic and arranged for multiple voices choral folk songs to be recorded and broadcast first on the radio and later on TV.
The Swiss music producer Marcel Cellier discovered the beauty of the Bulgarian folk songs, folk singers, their unique voices and choral skills and in 1975 released his first album with songs performed by the choir – Volume I, which he called “Le Mystere des Voix Bulgares” (The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices). The album soon became a best seller. In 1987 he released Volume II which in 1990 was awarded a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Folk Recording. It was at that time that the choir adopted the name “Le Mystere des Voix Bulgares”.
The concert of The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices ft. Lisa Gerrard will take place in the Macedonian Philharmonic on 8. October starting from 8 pm.
