Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares
Curated by Perfume Genius
The famous Bulgarian women's choir Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares ('Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices') is comprised of 22 members. Performing in traditional clothing, the varying voices of the choir weave together in a serene manner, forming cunningly complex arrangements. The ensemble originated in 1952 (as The Bulgarian State Television Female Vocal Choir), and has since been performing ancient Bulgarian folk songs which, thanks to the innovative vocal use, conjure melodies that take you across time and space.
Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares will release a new album with Lisa Gerrard from Dead Can Dance in the beginning of 2018. The choir will perform songs from the new album, marking the premiere of these works in The Netherlands.
