pFolklore Ensemble RHODOPA (FE RHODOPA) was founded in 1960 in the Bulgarian city of Smolyan, situated in the heart of the Rhodope mountains-the cradle of the legendary Orpheus. Some years later our ensemble catapulted Bulgarian folklore music to unprecedented worldwide acclaim - a Rhodopean song of our repertoire, performed by our soloist Valya Balkanska, became a part of the Voyager Golden Record selection of music included in the two Voyager spacecraft launched in 1977. This song, called "Izlel je Delyu Haidutin", is expected to be played in space for at least 60,000 years more. FE RHODOPA repertoire comprises over 500 arranged 800 authentic bulgarian folklore musical pieces, 80 dance spectacles over 80 orchestra pieces.p
