Heavenly Recordings are thrilled to announce the return of Halo Maud who surprise-releases a new four-track EP titled Pesnopoïka. The EP serves an enticing prelude to a new album which will be released in 2023 via the label. To accompany today’s announcement Maud has shared a mesmerizing, dreamlike video for the ravishing title track.
Writing about the EP and video Halo Maud says:
“I am very happy to be sharing my new song Pesnopoïka, accompanied by a video and a bouquet of three additional tracks. I’ve been interested in Bulgarian traditional music for years now. While doing some research on the subject I came across the word pesnopoïka, which I thought sounded beautifully and strangely familiar. I learned that in traditional weddings the vocal part of the music is almost exclusively performed by the women in groups. Except during the most festive moments when a particularly good singer is recognized as pesnopoïka and sings solo accompanied by musicians.
