Bulgarian Voices

In 1992, Ray Lema worked with the Professor Stefanov, a master of bulgarian vocal art, and artistic director of  Pirin orchestra since 1956.  They composed and recorded together an amazing album in which 23 singers (14 Bulgarians, six Africans and three french singers) blend their voices and cultures in a swirl of dazzling melodies. The success of the album  brought  Ray Lema and the  Pirin orchestra in extended tours in 1993: Francofolies,  Sfinks festival in Belgium or the Festival of “Musiques Métisses d’ Angoulême”.
