Passing with the time - Popular Bulgarian Folk Songs (Various (vocal and instruments))

The CD includes songs which are popular and loved by listeners, and have been recorded close to the original works – by using voice without accompaniment, or only one instrument, or voice and instrument. The programme is a result of two-years' work by Milen Slavov, who is composer, music producer, accordionist and has been living in the USA since 1997. 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. The programme also contains the performance of Zhivka Papancheva – a singer, who has also been living in the USA for some years now and takes part in all concerts of Milen Slavov. Some other colleagues of his from Bulgaria are also featured – Petro Kostadinov (who is at present solist of the Bulgarian National Radio Folk Orchestra), Lyuben Dossev (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. The release stresses especially on the ancient vocal and instrumental performance, reminiscent of the unique and authentic Bulgarian folklore style.
