In this unique study, Rosemary Statelova axamines chalga, a Bulgarian popular music phenomenon that burst into popularity in the 1990s after the fall of the Bulgarian communist regime in 1898, as a prism through which to view contemporary Bulgarian culture and Bulgarian identity, especially vis-a-vis its Ottoman past and its European future. In her analysis of chalga as a social phenomenon that raises complex questions about ethnicity, the culture industry, and artistic merit, Statelova "samples" voices from many different strata of Bulgarian siciety, creating a dialogical "dance mix" from the discourses surrounding this musical genre. While the first half of the book addresses the historical development of the genre and the discussions surrounding it and introduces a number of contemporary theoretical approaches to chalga, the second half focuses on three Bulgarian ethnopop musicians, whose personal histories illustrate the comlexity of the current Bulgarian pop music landscape.
