TUЯBO FФLK & WAKE

.
.
WAKE
 .
Recently awarded the 2013 Galaxie Rising Star Award, Briga just released her 3rd album Wake (Bahtalo Records 2014).
.
Written in honour of her dearly departed father, and tracked live with the band in 3 days, string arranger Tom Cohen came in a month later to track strings on top of Briga’s compositions.
 .
The result is a concept album that explores her father’s mysterious Polish/Jewish roots; delivered with a Turbo Folk edge, wrapped up in heavy Balkan & Morrocan grooves, and polished with lamenting judeo-arabic strings. Wake’s sound is a jem that lies somewhere between the everyday and the monumental.

 TURBO-FOLK STORIES
.

Turbo Folk Stories (Bahtalo Records 2012)  came to us a year after her touring through the Balkans playing Romani (Gypsy) weddings with Bulgaria’s no.1 Violinist and her mentor, Georgi Yanev (Георги Янев). Turbo Folk Stories features a mix of traditional Bulgarian, Macedonian & Serbian songs, as well as original repertoire that at times makes a light reference to the musical genres of Serbian Turbo Folk & Bulgarian Chalga.
