The new album of the Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices (Le Mystere des Voix Bulgares) will be released globally on 25 May, its producers Schubert Music Publishing have announced, cited by BGNES. The record has the ear-catching title BooCheeMish and contains 12 new compositions, written specifically for the world-renowned Bulgarian women's choir. This is the choir's first studio record in almost 20 years.
BooCheeMish is the result of over two years of work by the choir, its team of producers and everyone else involved in the project. Special guest on the album is Australian singer Lisa Gerrard, known to music fans as part of the Dead Can Dance duet and as a composer and performer of film music. Together with Hans Zimmer, she is a Golden Globe Award-winner for best original score for Gladiator.
The album also features beatbox world champion SkilleR and German percussionist David Kuckhermann. It carries the talented presence of Bulgarian musicians Petar Milanov (guitar), Hristina Beleva (Bulgarian rebec), Kostadin Genchev (shepherd's pipe) and Dimitar Karamfilov (contrabass). Produced by Schubert Music Publishing, the album features songs by Bulgarian composer and producer Petar Dundakov, Lisa Gerrard, and Irish composer Jules Maxwell. The official distributor of the record is the independent German music label Prophecy Productions.
The 12 remarkable music pieces offer a new and unique experience to music connoisseurs and fans of the Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices. Some of them are world-class modern variations on Bulgarian folk melodies. Days before the premiere, prestigious global media outlets like the British magazines MOJO and Song Lines wrote about the upcoming release as a true event in the music world and published interviews with participants in the project. The renowned Bulgarian women's choir will give a special concert together with Lisa Gerrard on 12 June in Varna as part of the Varna Summer International Music Festival.
In 2017, the choir presented the new songs of the album to the Bulgarian audience first, with thrilling concerts in Sofia and Plovdiv. Since then, the Mystery of Bulgarian Voices has had a series of highly successful appearances in Belgium, the Netherlands (as part of the Le Guess Who? festival), Italy, etc. In the summer and autumn of this year, the choir is set to promote its new album with concerts in Switzerland, Poland, Belgium, Italy, Germany and other countries.
