Nikolina Chakurdukova “Pusta mladost/More Na Sred Selo Cheshma sharena/Dedo Mili zlatni/Mitro Le Mitro”
from Edna Mechta II (ARA www.ara-bg.com 2005) —a suite of very well-known traditional songs, done up in contemporary style. This show is entirely devoted to music from Pirin, the part of Macedonia that is in the south-eastern corner of Bulgaria.
Kostadin Atanasov “Tezhko Makedonsko horo & Rusaliyski igri”
from Sharena Gaïda (VD www.vvd-r.com 2008) —This style of Gaïda (bagpipe) playing can be found anywhere in the Macedonia area. This stylization owes a lot to the work of Pece Atanasovski, who worked on the other side of the Bulgarian/Yugoslav border in the 60's, 70's 80's and 90's.
Iliana Bozhanova, with Lyuben Dossev, Ivan Antonov, Petûr Zahariev & Mitko Popov “Sevdino Oro”
from (private issue) ((private recording)) —The singer herself graciously gave me this recording, which she made several years ago.
