Biography

Trio Bulgarka (Трио Българка, also known as “Three Golden Coins”, previously known as “Bulgarka Folk Trio”) was a Bulgarian vocal ensemble active from 1975 to 1999. The trio comprised of Stoyanka Boneva (Стоянка Бонева) from Pirin, Yanka Rupkina (Янка Рупкина) from Strandja and Eva Georgieva (Ева Георгиева) from Dobroudja. Their diversity of regional backgrounds enabled them to create a unique sound to their music.

They gained international prominence through their contributions to the ground-breaking Bulgarian folk music album "Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares, Volume 1", released on the Swiss label Disques Cellier in 1975 and reissued on the British 4AD Records in 1986.

They signed to record labels Bulgaria Balkanton and Hannibal in 1987. Two years later they featured on "The Sensual World" album by Kate Bush on the songs “Deeper Understanding”, “Never Be Mine”, and “Rocket’s Tail”. In 1993 they appeared on another Kate Bush album, "The Red Shoes", on the songs “You’re the One”, “The Song of Solomon”, and “Why Should I Love You?”, which also featured Prince. After that the trio concentrated on solo projects but often re-formed for concert appearances until 1999.

Eva Georgieva died in 2004.
