Unique vocal brilliance - loved by Kate Bush & Gorillaz – at a unique location
‘I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was. I listened to Le Mystère all the time.’
‘I saw them live and I just thought: that’s IT. That’s the top. You can’t go further.'
(Lisa Gerrard - Dead Can Dance)
Isn’t it strange how an ensemble that was established in 1952 (!), and had an incredible popularity in the second half of the ‘80s, suddenly turns up everywhere again. The angelic voices of Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares have appeared at the renowned Primavera festival in Barcelona and also at AB. Lady Gaga recently used their music in her documentary ‘Five Foot Two’ and Le Mystère was also flaunted on ‘kick-ass women’, a recent Gorillaz mixtape. Drake and Leftfield sampled their music and Lisa Gerrard (Dead Can Dance) helped out on their latest album ‘BooCheeMish’.
AB is proud to be able to present this unique 22-member female choir at a unique location: the Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula. On the programme: A Christmas Mystery, with a setlist containing traditional Bulgarian Christmas songs as well as traditional Christmas carols. As icing on the cake, the choir will also perform songs from their latest album.
