Maria Koleva was born in Karlovo, in the Rose Valley of Bulgaria. Paul Winter has long loved Bulgarian music, since hearing, in the early 1960s, the legendary album Music of Bulgaria, by the Koutev Ensemble. Having finally had the opportunity to visit Bulgaria in 2012 for thier Flyways project, Paul wanted then to feature Bulgarian music in the next Summer Solstice Celebration. The Consort was privileged to also have Maria’s father, Nikolay Kolev, who is a renowned player of the gadulka (Bulgarian mandolin), and virtuoso kaval (flute) player Nikola Gaydarov. Maria says: “This song is about the time when Bulgaria was under the Ottoman Empire. It is basically historical and a bit sad.”
