When you listen to Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares you feel like you are in some place else rather then Earth. This is a very good album with the same quality of the first one, which was a superb CD. The second one still brings you the angelical voices of these incredible women. The voice of Yanka Roupkina set up a standart in the frist one (third track, Kalimankou Denkou). If you liked the first one you certainly will like the second.

In 1988 the French record producer Marcel Cellier brought recordings of a few Bulgarian state ensemles to the West. The resulting album, LE MYSTERE DES VOIX BULGARES was an explosive suprise and helped start a world music explosion. But Cellier had more material, and this VOLUME 2 quickly appeared. On these 16 songs performed by the Bulgarian State Television Female vocal choir, we hear the same exotic music, where singers possess limited vocal range but piercing projection and resonance, joining in intervals never heard in traditional Western art music.

It must again be repeated that this is not authentic Bulgarian folk music, but rather sophisticated arrangements made by composers during the Communist era. Many of the lyrics here are from old folk songs ("Ghiore Dos" is actually a popular children's song), and the method of singing each singer displays is truly old, but you're crazy if you think any folk music has four-part counterpoint. Still, folk cultures are dying across Europe, and these arrangements are becoming all we have left of a precious tradition snuffed out by Western decadence.

The fine arrangement "Kaval Sviri" is just as good an opener as "Pilentze Pee" was on the first disc. Subsequent standouts include "Bezrodna Nevesta", "Izpoved", and "Atmadja Duma Strachilu". My favourite dialect of Bulgarian is that of the Shopsko region, and I was happy to see it represented here with "Tche Da Kupim Bela Seitsa". Some of the other material, however, is uneven. "Di-Li-Do", for example, is just plain silly, although the recording quality charmingly hints that it was long buried in some archive.

As with the first volume, I'm unhappy here Nonesuch's packaging.

I knew very little about the Bulgarian State TV and Radio Womens hoir until I heard a short clip of di-li do on the radio. I was intrigued and decided to buy a CD to see if I would like more of their music. Lo and behold the CD arrived and went straight into the CD-player. I was enchanted with the sometimes haunting music. In some cases it can be dissonant (my wife's reaction was "What the heck is that") but it draws you in. Not all of the tracks are great but some are amazing di-li do in particular. My music collection features a range of less conventional music such as Kodo, modern organ music, Russian liturgy, and so on and so on. This fits right in. It's odd how traditional musical styles can fit with a modern classical music sensibility. I recommend this highly but do advise listening to some of the 30 second clips if you are unsure. Once you get hooked though this is compelling. I willl buy more of the oeuvre in the future.

I fell in love/awe with this album when I first heard & absorbed it in 1997 and it's haunted me since then. The dissonent harmonies and intricate rhythms grab a hold and shake my soul with each and every listen. I plan to someday visit Bulgaria based solely on my fascination with this music.
