Back in the mid-80s, a female choir from Bulgaria became an unlikely global sensation with a thrilling, other-worldly and ancient style that few outsiders could even begin to imitate. Le Mystère Des Voix Bulgares, as they were then known, won a Grammy and were partly responsible for the creation of a new genre – world music – as record company executives debated how their unique music (and that of newly popular African bands) should be displayed in record stores. Their admirers ranged from Kate Bush, who had them sing on three songs from her 1989 album The Sensual World, to David Bowie and his wife Iman, who chose one of their songs to replace Here Comes the Bride at their wedding.

And then there was Lisa Gerrard of experimental ambient duo Dead Can Dance, who had moved to London from Australia with Brendan Perry and signed to 4AD, the same indie label as Voix Bulgares. Gerrard says that the Bulgarian women changed her life at a time when music was all “post-punk, towards Joy Division. I never really connected with that very dark and very depressed side of the work that Brendan connected with. I was ready to give up. But when I heard the Bulgarians, they were my saving grace because I just loved the pure joy and the pure light – it just hits you straight in the belly. I don’t know if I’d have survived London as a singer if I had not come into contact with their work”. Now, more than 30 years later, she is singing with the latest line-up of the choir, re-branded as the more mundane The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices. She appears on, and even co-wrote, some of the songs on their new album BooCheeMish, their first release in two decades; tonight, she makes her first UK appearance with the choir, at London’s Southbank Centre.
