“Pora Sotunda” is a brand new very limited 7” by the cult band The Mystery Of The Bulgarian Voices featuring Dead Can Dance vocalist Lisa Gerrard. “Pora Sotunda” is the first release of new material by the choir written in over 20 years. Included on this single are the tracks “Pora Sotunda” and “Ganka”.

The single is released in a limited edition 7″ vinyl format only, and is sure to become a sought-after collector’s item. It precedes the release of a forthcoming The Mystery Of The Bulgarian Voices album scheduled for early 2018. Orders can be placed right here (tip: it’s an investment, so if you order a lot you’ll be in for quite an ROI – don’t say we didn’t tell you).

Check the trailer:

The choir became famous after the English independent record label 4AD reissued a pair of anthology albums in 1986 and 1988 with the title “Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares”. The choir is not a newbee as it has recordings dating back as far as 1957. 4AD founder Ivo Watts-Russell had been introduced to the choir via a third or fourth generation cassette lent to him by Peter Murphy, singer from the band Bauhaus, who himself had been entranced by the music.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
