Bulgarian polyphony is an ancient, complex, unique and powerfully evocative, Unesco listed, singing tradition that is typified by strong female voices, dissonant harmonies and complex rhythms.

Under the charismatic leadership of the world renowned Dessilslava Stefanova, the London Bulgarian Choir has gathered a wide following, being named on BBC Radio 4 as one of Joan Armatrading's favourite choirs, winning BBC Radio 3 Open Choir of the Year in 2006, and performing at numerous prestigious venues, including Westminster Abbey.

Dessi will lead a two hour workshop, followed by a full concert.
Don't miss this chance to hear this inspiring music for yourself, and to learn from an acclaimed master of the tradition.

'If you get the chance to see them live, do go.
Dessislava introduces you and she's such a wonderful raconteur between the songs,
drawing you in to the remarkable stories of these folk songs.'
- Cerys Matthews, singer and presenter

‘Simultaneously haunting and hearty, eerie yet emphatic, and utterly bewitching.’
- Independent on Sunday
‘The Bulgarians made already fine songs even better, transforming the good to
the great, the earthbound to celestial.’
- The Evening Standard

‘The choir does not aspire to being a simple carbon copy of a Bulgarian original,
but has instead forged its own sound.’
- Songlines magazine

‘The music they produce is difficult and complex – [the choir] achieves an
excellence that is breathtaking.’
- Roderick Williams, singer and presenter

‘It’s also beautifully made, with the masterstroke of a haunting, atmospheric
soundtrack specially composed and performed by the London Bulgarian Choir.’
- The Telegraph

‘The London Bulgarian Choir are superb.’
- The Stage
