: Rhythms of the World

The Music of Bulgaria Tonight's programme features a wide range of popular traditional music from Bulgaria. The
Bulgarians are passionate about music - it is part of their national identity - and their songs deal with every aspect of people's lives.
Like many music lovers in the West, pop star Kate Bush has only recently discovered the intensity and richness of Bulgarian music. Last October Rhythms of the World filmed her at work in the recording studio with three of Bulgaria's leading female vocalists. Trio
Bulgarka. They provide a fascinating insight into a living musical tradition and show why their mesmerising harmonies are captivating British audiences. Their success here has led to sellout tours, an appearance on Wogan and album chart success.
Also included is the furious, bop-inspired playing of another major Bulgarian star, Ivo Papasov. He first appeared on stage at the age of 13. Since then he has been developing a unique style which blends hard jazz with traditional Bulgarian gypsy music.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
