I was watching Macy Gray being interviewed over the weekend and it reminded me what a wonderful and very distinctive voice she has This got me thinking of other singers/vocalists with equally distinct voices.
Here's a few of my favourites starting with the obvious Macy Gray
So what are other peoples thoughts as to vocalists who could be said to be unique or different.
The album this group made won the Grammy for International Music in the late '80s I believe.
Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares (translated as "The Mystery of Bulgarian Voices") is a compilation album of modern arrangements of Bulgarian folk songs featuring, among others, the Bulgarian State Radio & Television Female Vocal Choir, with soloists Yanka Rupkina, Kalinka Valcheva and Stefka Sabotinova; and the Filip Kutev Ensemble.
The album was the result of fifteen years of work by Swiss ethnomusicologist and producer Marcel Cellier and was released in 1975 on his small Disques Cellier label. Some of the recordings he made himself; others were taken from the archives of Radio Sofia.
