Cosmic Voices Acapella Choir at National Concert Hall Dublin
Acapella female choir from Bulgaria
The soaring voices of twenty Bulgarian women who form ‘Cosmic Voices’ open to us a real musical treasure, a centuries-old practice of rich sonorities, complex harmonies and driving rhythms that are unique to this part of the world.
Cosmic Voices’ singing is of an ethereal quality, with calculated minor and major dissonances creating an evocative atmosphere that is impossible to resist. This is music that is exotic yet somehow strikes familiar chords, the product of a vibrant culture that combines Slavic, Turkish and Asiatic influences.
In the past several members of the choir sang with the much-acclaimed Mystery Voices choir which toured Europe to packed audiences. Today Cosmic Voices reaches out to the world with its unique interpretation of Bulgarian folk music. This remarkable choir is surely one of Bulgaria’s most appreciated cultural projects on the international stage today.
Produced by Emil Minev & conducted by Vania Moneva
