Perunika Trio

Perunika Trio, named after Perunika, the Slavic goddess of rain and eternal beauty, are suitably based in London, the city of rain. The trio was formed in early 2006 by Eugenia Georgieva and rapidly gained recognition and popularity amongst the lovers of a cappella vocal harmony, drawing inspiration from the ancient Bulgarian vocal traditions and Church Slavonic chants. After the critically acclaimed “Introducing Perunika Trio” debut and several transformations, the group continues to explore the rich and multi-faceted folklore of southern Bulgaria – the land where pagan and Christian merge in an indelible whole. Although relatively small, the area is sub-divided into smaller folkloric regions with their own “voice”, dialects and singing styles. Now, the trio present the beautiful and mysterious Bulgarian Voices - traditional Bulgarian songs with outstanding a cappella vocal harmony, drawing inspiration from the ancient Bulgarian vocal traditions and Church Slavonic chants. "Rustic, without being overly romantic, combining a madrigal-like delicacy with a brooding Eastern Orthodox spirituality." - The Daily Telegraph
