The concert is part of London A Cappella Festival which celebrates its tenth anniversary in 2019. The choirâs concert will promote their new album released in March 2019 âBooCheeMishâ. Several songs in it are featuring the acclaimed Australian singer Lisa Gerrard, thereby uniting two of the mostÂ distinctive vocal acts working in music. Many of the songs onÂ âBooCheeMishâ are written, arranged and produced by Petar Dundakov.While some are fully original pieces, others areÂ based on folklore songs andÂ dances with original material added.Gerrard, who is also well known for her movie soundtrack work on films such asÂ âGladiatorâ andÂ âThe Insiderâ, has often spoken about the influence the choirÂ exerted on herÂ singing technique whenÂ she discovered their music in the early 1980âs.Â In successfully connecting Bulgarian folklore withÂ otherÂ traditions and cultures, the album retainsÂ theÂ uniqueÂ identity ofÂ theÂ voices, vocal styles and techniques of the individual choir members, even when allying them with acoustic accompaniment such as stringed instruments and various types of percussion, including beatbox.
