About us

Zornitsa Vocal Folk Group was found in 1997 as part of Zornitsa Folklore Ensemble with chief artistic director Emil Genov. In different periods of its existence conductors of the group were Valentin Yankov, Tatyana Toncheva and Aleksander Stoyanov. But since July 2004 conductor has been Dinko Dimov.

In its establishing the group consisted of 30 singers, men and women, all sharing the genuine love toward the Bulgarian folklore song. The repertoire of songs is highly varied. It includes song-specimens from all the ethnographic regions of Bulgaria, some authentic ones, and others - author arrangements of distinguished Bulgarian composers. Some of the songs they perform are:
Prochula se Neranza (arrangement Ivan Valev),
Trrendafilcheto (arrangement Nikolay Kaufman),
Saraj Danko,
Ruzhitsa (arrangement Stefan Kanchev),
Bre Petrunko,
Malka moma,
Karai mome,
Zaboril beh da se glavim (arrangement Nikolay Kaufman),
Pojdoh nadole (arrangement Tatyana Toncheva),
Zlata sedi na chardatsi (arrangement Stoyan Stoyanov),
Otishla mi e Stanina maika (arrangement Filip Koutev),
Vangeliyo, gizdava devojko,
Mile Popyordanov, and so on.
Once, guest-soloist in the group was the doyen of the Macedonian songs, the unforgettable performer Kostadin Gugov.

Except the great number of concerts in Bulgaria, the group was proud to perform also in Spain, France, Turkey, Greece, Serbia, Macedonia, and Moldova. At many of its international appearances Zornitsa group received praiseworthy awards, but most valuable for its members was the love of the public, which they experienced at everyplace they have been.

In 2001 women-singers from the group formed a quartet, which takes part with some beautiful songs in the new CD of Zornitsa vocal group, called `Pii momche vino`. All the songs in this CD are conducted by Aleksander Stoyanov, and are accompanied by an orchestra of folk instruments. It includes 13 well-chosen authentic and arranged folk songs. The disk was released in May 2005, produced and published by Balkanfolk.
