Another surprise along my way was Elitsa Todorova, a young vocalist from Varna, Bulgaria. Todorova is well known for her percussion work and vocal performances, authentic to the bulgarian folk lore sound. Her voice is bright, sparkly, incredibly controlled and magically beautiful. I feel blessed to have had the chance to work with such a talented woman. Elitsa is featured in “Soulseeker”.
