The Bulgarian Voices Angelite

The Bulgarian Voices Angelite (also known as The Bulgarian Women’s Choir Angelite or simply Angelite) is among the most renowned ensembles in the categories of Balkan and Bulgarian folk music. This women’s choir has performed practically everywhere: on the Red Square in Moscow, at the award ceremony of the Nobel Peace Prize in Stockholm and at the Vatican. The cryptic, mysterious, perhaps even somewhat mystical quality that characterises the choir’s sound arises primarily from the singers’ preference for a second voice which is maintained a slight interval to the leading melody. ...read more

The Bulgarian Voices Angelite (also known as The Bulgarian Women’s Choir Angelite or simply Angelite) is among the most renowned ensembles in the categories of Balkan and Bulgarian folk music. This women’s choir has performed practically everywhere: on the Red Square in Moscow, at the award ceremony of the Nobel Peace Prize in Stockholm and at the Vatican. The cryptic, mysterious, perhaps even somewhat mystical quality that characterises the choir’s sound arises primarily from the singers’ preference for a second voice which is maintained a slight interval to the leading melody.

This results in a kind of nearly-dissonant friction as well as a great radiant power, as of an unfolded colour spectrum: The singers’ voices fan out into a colourfully glowing sound palette that plays with overtone resonance. As a result, “Angelite” offers something that goes far beyond common folk music: It is the artful and skilful enhancement of traditional elements to form a style which - despite its a great affinity with the folklore of Bulgaria - can be considered a category of its own. On the one hand it possesses an “authentic” sound, i.e. preserves the heritage; on the other hand it has advanced into the sphere of art music. « hide
