The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices (formerly Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares, formerly the Bulgarian State Television Female Vocal Choir) is a Grammy-winning musical group that sings arrangements of traditional Bulgarian folk music. Founded in the 1950s, the group became known to Western audiences in the 1980s through the work of ethnomusicologist Marcel Cellier and the record label 4AD, and even appeared on Johnny Carson's Tonight Show (including a rendition of "O Susanna"!). Here's a more recent performance for KEXP. The current iteration of the group is touring with Lisa Gerrard of Dead Can Dance, and are profiled in the Guardian.
