Nadka Karadzhova (Bulgarian: Надка Караджова; 1937 – 2011) was one of Bulgaria's most noted folk singers and the first to become internationally known. She was born in Tri Voditzi in the region of Pazardzhik in 1937 into a family of singers. Her most noted hit was Zablelyalo mi aguntze (A Lambkin has commenced bleating) which in 1979 became a UK hit.
On receiving news of her death Tsetska Tsacheva, the President of the Bulgarian National Assembly President, wrote a condolatory address: "The talent of Nadka Karadzhova to create beauty with her voice was unparalleled. She not only won the major national awards, but also many prestigious international ones. With her memorable performances she uncovered to the world the immense beauty of the Bulgarian folklore."
