International festival program “Friends of Bulgaria” starts during the new year a series of concerts.The beginning is a folklore concert on 20.02.2012 in NDK. We start with traditions, but with their re-creation from nowadays.
The participants: FOLKLORE ENSEMBLE “TRAKIA” – innovator in music and dancing as they do not break even for a moment the connection between modern art and the deep roots of Bulgarian folklore, traditions and legends. This choir sang in the Paris Hall “Olympia” in 1990 and took 3rd place in “Billboard”’s ranking during the same year.
BULGARA – the group that uses Drum and Bass, Funk and Broken beats, Jungle, Rock and Jazz to highlight the harmonic beauty of Bulgarian folklore, combining traditional instruments with electroacoustic.
EVA QUARTET – being a part of the group of Mystery of Bulgarian voices with who they sing, they have accomplished lots of successful concerts in prestigious festivals and in concert halls. They have also taken part in compilations with worldwide famous performers, tours in more than 20 countries all across the world.
DUET DVUGLAS – Daniel Spasov and Milen Ivanov – the only male voices in the concert programs and albums of the worldwide famous choir “Mystery of Bulgarian voices”, who look for modern musical decisions and in this way they create that unique look of theirs.”
And, of course, the future dances and choreographers of Bulgaria – the children of NATIONAL SCHOOL OF DANCING ART – who took the huge responsibility to preserve Bulgaria’s folklore traditions.
