The group of four talented musicians - a vocal-tamboura quartet, successors of the tradition to play folk music the way it has been passed from generation to generation. In the remoteness of the Rhodope mountains, far away from any civilization, there merry songs have gained primary strength in the course of centuries. The group has been the bearer both of a number of national and of international awards of folk song and dance festivals, the most valuable among which has been the Silver Axe Grand Prix (2003) from the Zakopane (Poland) festival, which enjoys high prestige.

Sie kamen aus dem bulgarischen Rhodopen-Gebirge - und wurden beim "Open Europe"-Festival die absoluten Publikumslieblinge. Das Quartett tritt sonst bei Hochzeiten in seinem Dorf auf. Im Haus der Kulturen der Welt bewegten sie am Sonnabend Grossstadt-Menschen zu wilden Kreistaenzen.
