Sofiya, Bulgaria (1966 – 2010)

Shturcite was formed in 1966 in Sofia by Kiril Marichkov, Petar Tsankov, (both from the Bandaratsite band) Petar Gyuzelev, and Veselin Kisyov (both from the Slanchevi Bratya band). Their first performance was at a students party in VITIZ (The Bulgarian Performing Arts Academy), and in 1967 they recorded their first songs. At first Georgi Minchev took part in the group too, and with him they created their first hit: the song Byala Tishina (White Silence), written by the composer Boris Karadimchev, winning the national award of Belia Orfei (The White Orpheus).

In 1968 the group released their first EP including Veselina (“Веселина”, lyrics by Radoy Ralin), Zvan(Ring), Malkiat Svetal Prozorets (The Little Bright WIndow) and Izprashtane.

They released their first self-titled album in 1976. It instantly became a hit and sold more than 100 000 copies. The songs ‘На Прага’, ‘Говори се за нещо’ and ‘Дяволски сезон’ became prominent hits. 1978 saw the release of their second self-titled album. It was also their first record with the would-be classic line up, which included Georgi Markov on the drums and Vladimir ‘Valdi’ Totev on the keyboards and vocals.
In 1980 they released their third LP, “XX век”(XXth century), which would become a solid classic in the Bulgarian rock catalogue. It spawned many hit songs like the title track, “Среща”(Rendezvous) and “Две следи”(Two traces). All three are considered essential Bulgarian rock songs and remain immensely popular to this day.

    И летя към своя хоризонт, и летя през кулите от пясък... Миналото си смених с кон, и за мене изборът е ясен.

    Аре бе, никой ли не слуша Щурците! Уважавайте истинската българска музика, а не шибаните чалгии с които ви промиват празните главички!

    Новият албум е доста свестен, изключвайки някои малко неловки моменти.
