Eugenia Georgieva is a Bulgarian singer, performer, and translator.
She is internationally known for her work with Bulgarian a cappella group Perunika Trio, vocal fusion outfit YANTRA, exploring the intersecting points of Bulgarian, Indian and Renaissance English sacred and secular tradition, and her own five-piece band of virtuosos Eugenia Georgieva & Band.
For this special intimate performance, she will present a selection of songs from that tradition, unadorned and sung completely a cappella, as they would have been performed on those long winter nights at work gatherings, or on starry summer evenings on the village square.
The rhythm of the language and the emotional intensity shape up the melodic formula. Some of them reflect the times of slavery, others are humorous with roots in medieval imagery, and some give us an insight into the most intimate workings of a human soul.
