Народната певица Валя Балканска на 65 години

Българката, чийто глас лети в Космоса на американската совалка “Вояджър”, този месец изпълни 65 години.



Валя Балканска е родена през 1942 година в махала Лагът, недалече от село Арда в сърцето на южните Родопи. Двегодишна загубва баща си, загинал като участник във Втората световна война, но знае, че когато той пеел, планината се люлеела. Осемгодишна запява на сцената и днес репертоарът й съдържа около 300 песни.
