    Default Best Albums for Traditional Bulgarian/Balkan Music

    This might be too niche, but I figured it's worth asking. What are good albums for traditional music of Bulgaria and the Balkan region in general? Maybe some that have translations to sung texts? I'm thinking of the types of pieces that have been handed down for generations.

    @adriesba
    I recommend you Isihia's "Isihia" (2001), "Orisiya" (2003) and "Stihiri" (2010) albums. This band is not playing pure Traditional Bulgarian Music, but quoting from Wikipedia: "... the style of which unites elements of Bulgarian folklore and Hesychast Christian chant of the 14th century to create an atmosphere of Balkan spiritual mysticism.".
