The Balkans - and not least Bulgaria - is known throughout the world for their amazing folk music. Music that is nuanced, equilibristic, complex, melodious, with an infectious energy and great emotional depth.
Orfeus Balkan Ensemble was formed in 2014 and consists of four musicians - two Bulgarian and two Danish - who have entered deeply into the secrets of this music and master it on a high professional level.
The repertoire comes from all parts of Bulgaria - rooted in the tradition, as well as in touch with the contemporary folk music. The repertoire includes new arrangements of old folk songs - and brand new pieces composed by the members of the band.
Orfeus Balkan Ensemble has performed at concerts and music festivals in Denmark, Sweden, Bulgaria and Serbia - and just released their first album "Zakachka"!
