Well, we all know how Kate loved working with TR, but what did they think of working with KaTe?

"The Trio Bulgarka recently helped Kate Bush on three tracks of her upcoming album. "We were glad to have the opportunity to meet and work together with Kate Bush," the trio explains with the help of an interpreter. "Joe Boyd (background deleted) was the one who initiated it. Kate Bush is a wonderful person and singer, and highly proffesional. She is a good musician, has a very good attitude towards others. She's modest, you know, with a very big heart. Her singing has warmth to it. We had to record the vocals in about two days. It was hard work, and we improvised Bulgarian harmonies onto her music. It is not an easy job grafting those harmonies onto other types of music. But everything went very well, and she was happy to work with us."

"It was interesting to work in the sphere of pop music," explains Yanka. "It's another genre, and every professional singer has to take risks and try new things, has to work to enrich himself, not only in the field of music but in many other things."
