“Mysterious” Bulgarian Voices

In 1980 an album called “Le Mystères de Voixs Bulgares,” a compilation of performances by several Bulgarian vocal groups, introduced the world to truly unique Bulgarian (so-called) “open-throated” singing. These astounding vocalists inspired generations of Americans to pursue the art of Bulgarian singing.  In this video we meet Bulgarian music as much of the United States did in the early ’80s — with a mesmerizing Bulgarian vocal performance on the Tonight Show.
