No one can explain the CHALGA phenomenon - the strangest thing about it being the lack of any Bulgarian roots in the CHALGA subculture and still its high popularity in Bulgaria only. Bulgarians tend to like other Balkan peoples' shitty Oriental music and at the same time seem to ignore their own beautiful European folk music.
The word CHALGA has Turkish or Gypsie roots and it means a small orchestra of drunk gypsie musicians, making shitty noise in the middle of the night.
The CHALGA subculture has its own trade mark way of dressing - it is the pimp/prostitute fashion style.
Men should look tough and shuld be covered in golden jewelry while women should look as dumb as possible and should be dressed in a way corresponding to the style of the shittiest prostitute on the road side.
Bulgarian CHALGA musicians get inspired by mustached Turkish crap-eaters and Serbian big-boobed whores.
Fuck knows why...
Oh bathroom,oh joy
the village bathroom is the greatest joy!
- lack of inteligence
- peasant origin (not really necessary)
- whore type dress style (for women) and "big necklaces, cheap sport's wear, white socks and black shoes" (for men)
Well known names from the CHALGA industry are: KONDIO CIGANINA TUP, MARA OTVARIACHKATA, GERGANA the SILICONE and many others.
In fact, the last years the CHALGA replaced the porno industry, forbidden in Bulgaria. The women who would like to become a CHALGA singer should go through several tests of their sexual capacities. Just after being sleeping with 2 producers, 1 CEO, 2 high level criminals, 7 low level criminals, 4 shopassistants (generally in butcher's shop) and 12 neigbours they are titled "APPRENTICE CHALGA SINGER"
In general to become a CHALGA SINGER there is also an "lack of intelligence test" with those 3 questions:
2. What is the first name of Todor Jivkoff
3. Name one river starting with "D" and finishing with "unav"
If you have more than one correct answer you are expeled for good from the CHALGA society.
"Zaebi q taq CHALGARKA" - we'd better not to discuss any further this woman with behaviour like a whore
Are you with me?
Now, imagine the worm inside the horse-shits which is eating them (intestinal worm). Now, imagine the shits of that worm.
So, that bloody heap of smelly worm shits is chalga.
In other words, chalga is extracted shit from all dirt in the World.
God bless all who are not in Bulgaria and those that don’t know what is this chalga. Fucking chalga is everywhere in Bulgaria.
who has 'em baby shaked off
Who has you baby lied
Who has yo baby fucked up
Features cheesy lyrics and primitive melody, bearing superficial resemblance to traditional Bulgarian folk music.
From Turkish "chalga" meaning popular music (or sort of - corrections welcome.)
Do you have the dough

Pretty chicks for you
...and don't say words of love to me,

The rocks are falling,

Green, green when all my money are green, green !
is my neighbour bai Ivan
he's old-known in the PD (police department)
with his thefts from the TKZS (the communist system of division of the agricultural land)
Bai Ivan is very wild
whenever he steals he's happy
he lacks conscience and morality
even the mayor was robbed by him!
7 times he has stolen
the pumps of the dam (!!!:D)
(duet "Apollon" - Bai Ivan)
