It was, maybe four years ago, when I was interested on bulgarian culture. It started with Chalga pop (bulgarian pop-folk genre), nextly various cultural things and lastly, various kinds of bulgarian folk music. Also, bulgarian language is very similar to language, which was used by ancestors of Slovakia, I think on Church Slavonic.
Here is example of bulgarian folk music.
Some people, or maybe those which are interested on ethnic music something knows about bulgarian female polyphonic choirs. Also, some ethno musical projects and composers uses female bugarian voices too. This thing is very common in bulgarian folk music.
Here is example of those balkan female angel singing.
It was maybe in year 2011, when I’ve encountered Folk music from Alpine region. There was also Oberkrayner music from Slovenia. I’ve listened those music from various radio station across the internet, which played Volksmusik, as is named this music genre. Also, there people played also windbands, but not only of Austria or Germany, but also from Czech republic. This same with some kind of music, which I didn’t known. There were some Waltzes and Polkas, played on Accordion, Trumpet, Baritone horn and Guitar. This was Oberkrayner music. I have discovered, that this music was firstly created in Slovenia in Upper Carniola region (in german language named Oberkrayn). Ofcourse, there are maybe some similarities to the german folk music, due to the german influence of this region and also, to the slovenian culture.
If You don’t believe me, here is example of Oberkrayner music.
Here is finally, video of my country Slovakia. Also, for people, Slovakia is eastern part of former Czechoslovakia. Slovenia is something different.
