GD 295 Milen SLAVOV, Passing With the Time, POPULAR BULGARIAN FOLK SONGS
Style: Folklore Music
Company: Gega New, GD295
The CD includes songs which are popular and loved by listeners, and they have been recorded close to the original works - by using voice without accompaniment, only with one instrument, or voice and instrument. We can listen to " Dimcho le , gaidardziiche le ", " Zasvirili sa mi dor tri mi gaidi "' U Nedini ravni dvori ", " Panju Pashata ", Baino mi sa , ljube le , pozakani ", and a lot of other well known songs . The content of the CD is a result of a two-years' work by Milen SLAVOV , a composer, music producer, accordionist, who has been living in the USA since 1997. The recordings have been made in his MS Music Agency Studio, in the USA. Milen Slavov taught at the California University of Los Angeles and has twice received Performing Arts Fellowships in Music Composition; from the California Arts Council, and the Mississippi Arts Commission.
"PASSING WITH THE TIME" also contains the performance of Zhivka PAPANCHEVA - a singer, who has also been living in the USA for some years now and has taken part in all the concerts given by Milen Salvov. Some other colleagues from Bulgaria are also featured - the gaida player Petyo KOSTADINOV (who is at present soloist of the Bulgarian National Radio Folk Orchestra); Lyuben DOSSEV , kaval (who currently teaches at the Academy of Music and Dance Arts in Plovdiv, and is also conductor of Ensemble Trakia's Orchestra); and Teodor DIMITROV , gudulka . The release especially stresses on the ancient vocal and instrumental performance, reminiscent of the unique and authentic style of Bulgarian folklore.
