I really feel the Trio bring a lot to the songs they feature on. So, what's your favourite song that features the Trio Bulgarka?
"Rocket's Tail" - without a doubt. I have some of their music other than as Kate's back-up. There are a few Macedonian songs that have a "Sensual World" vibe on their album "Penev" Also I bought a compilation that was released earlier this year (I have it at the office and can't remember the name...'something 'railroad or express*...I'll edit and add later) that features them on two tracks.
EDIT* Look up and listen to samples from the album "Impossible Broadcasting" from Trans-Global Underground.
I love the trio's work on Kate's songs, and bravo Kate for having the vision to see how it could compliment them (and for the skill of all concerned to integrate it so apparently effortlessly - I bet it wasn't easy! )
Couldn't decide between Rocket's Tail and Song of Solomon, but eventually went for the latter. The accapella intro section of Rocket.. is a marvel - a tour de force, but I love the emotional vibe they bring in the climax to Song of.. (and in Never Be Mine too it has to be said).
Never Be MIne. I love it. The song lyrics conjure up magical images to me...
