Beautiful. Haunting. Breathtakingly gorgeous. I bought this about 20 years ago and have just listened to it again for the first time in years. It still sounds amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply awesome! 25 May 2005
By Josh from Brazil - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I had the pleasure and the privilege to watch this fabulous group singing here in my contry, in the winter of '94. It was a mesmerising experience that I'll never forget. I already heard their music when I bought this cd about one or two years before and I simply loved it. It sounds so deep, intense and moving, with sophisticated harmonies and soulfull melodies, carring on all those ancient influences from a unexpected blend of two different cultures - slavic and turkish - that are easely recognized in the two best tunes "Sekoi Fali" and "Shope, Shope". The first one sounds like the chant of angels and the second one is full of energy, brilliant! It doesn't surprized me when I heard the audience, at the concert, begging for this song, in a July's cold night of 1994.

PS: the other songs are marvellous too!

4.0 out of 5 stars this music is awesome, but there are no extra tracks 16 Nov 2007
By Timothy Echols - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had this cd for years, but have been stuck out west without it for almost two years now, so when I saw it on amazon in a new edition with "extra tracks" on it, I jumped on it. bWell, it is exactly as I remembered it, and I mean exactly-- it ends exactly where it did on the copy I have it home, replete with the same soaring melodies, rhythmic excursions, microtonal shifts and impossibly close harmonies that have made me collect every title I have seen all these years of Bulgarian choral music. But someone should really inform Amazon that their indication that this title has extra tracks not on the other release is a falsehood. I guess I'll try to find the button to report that right now, so if you are reading this review and those words are not in the description after the title, I may have been successful. Otherwise, if you can find the older title cheaper, get it-- it's the exact same thing-- I memorized it long ago, and was eagerly awaiting some fresh new startling piece from this amazing canon. If it were advertised correctly, it would be 5 stars all the way. Incredible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking, ethereal voices 23 April 2012
By haregrog - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I don't know the history exactly, but at the end of the 20th century, a series of recordings (or, more accurately, collections of recordings) was made available in the Western world under the title Le Mystere des Voix Bulgares. The female choral tradition in the Balkans generally, and Bulgaria specifically, has deep roots and is more on the order of classical than folk music: these are not peasant women overheard whilst laboring out in the fields. (Well, for all I know, they may be peasant women, but they are also unquestionably artists of advanced and trained vocal talent, performing a repertoire of challenging and jaw-dropping beauty.)

One hopes they have been compensated adequately, but again, the story of how these recordings got to us is even more a mystery to me than where these ethereal sounds come from.

My favorite of the editions with which I am familiar is Vol. 3, so I'll start there as a recommendation, but to uninitiated ears I would imagine they will all sound more or less the same at first. Complicated time signatures, dissonant harmonies--and no one's going to mistake these choral women for Allison Krauss. Balkan singing is forceful and bracing and dares you to be ready for it. Better be standing with your knees bent or it may knock you over. I know these insistently gorgeous sounds knock me out every time.
