The first three definitions say it all :) Chalga fans like to call the style pop-folk because "chalga' sounds disguisting. In a matter of fact the same fans call "techno" every track that has a different drumbeat from chalga, hip-hop and metal - for chalga fans there are no other musical genres besides those :)
The first popular chalga songs were released in the years after 1989 (after the communist regime fell down). In these years bulgarians suffered very low salaries, expensive products and mafia governments. So songs like Slavi Trifonov's "A red-colorred Ferrari" has made most of these people happy while drinking to forget their problems :)
In present days chalga has become an enormous commercial project driven by those who know that big percent of the bulgarians are stupid. The text haven't changed and the songs still represent the gipsy life: a poor and miserable life. The producers fill the gaps in the songs with bulgarian native motives.
Chalga is not a musical genre only - it is also a way of living. This life includes buying cheap clothes that look expensive (to be "fashion" :) ), drinking alcohol without measure, making sex at very low age (there's a chalga group which members are 10 year old whores - "Little Panteras")
When you ask a man why is he listening to chalga he is not going to give you a reasonable answer. When you ask the same man why the chalga texts are so stupid his answer will be: "Metal texts are also stupid". I already told you about chalga fans' musical culture :)
Chalga singers are three types: males (mostly gay looking, kilograms of make-up on their faces), females (the same as males only they have bigger breasts and sing in another octave :) ) and true gays-hermaphrodites (they give birth at a concert at the stadium and the public is happy about this... this is true, i know you are stunned)
BG chalga producers release mostly 1:1 copies from other artists' tracks from Serbia, Greece and the other Balkan countries. Only the language is changed. In the other parts of the world this will be matter of prosecution but in Bulgaria the result is richer producers :)
Don't listen to chalga or you'll end up at the highway ;)
Slavi Trifonov - "A red-colorred Ferrari"
...A red-colorred Ferrari, one for you and one for me...
...Give me the number of God and i'll give him a call...
Amet - "Guci, Guci"
...Guci, guci (12), meeee, Guci, Guci (24), oooo....
Stupid, stupid, stupid. What else can be said bout these texts. Geez, chalga sucks terribly
Very shity music made by Bulgarian low-inteligent musiciants adicted to low-quality alcohol and preformed by guipsies and retarded whors(most often blond).The lyrics are cheesy and doesn't ring any bells...at all
(translation of a chalga lyr)
Oh bathroom,oh joy
the village bathroom is the greatest joy!
Chalga is a bulgarian style, first meant to be only limited to the music but then grown to a whole movement in the social life of Bulgaria. The main traits of the calga are the following:
- 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.
"Hey, CHALGAR smotan" - excuse me, sir, can I attract you attention to the following matter?
"Zaebi q taq CHALGARKA" - we'd better not to discuss any further this woman with behaviour like a whore
Imagine a horse. Imagine the heap of horse-shits.
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.
These red tomatoes
who has 'em baby shaked off
Who has you baby lied
Who has yo baby fucked up
Not particularly sophisticated music by (often) not particularly sophisticated composers, writers, and performers, mostly targeted at not particularly sophisticated listeners with 1/2" foreheads and no necks (insurance business folks, cops, cheap alcohol addicts, etc.)
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.)
Ooooh Tiger Tiger
Do you have the dough
Do you have the dou-U-u-u-Uu-u-ugh
Pretty chicks for you
A ganre in bulgarian music loosely based on bulgarian, greek and turkish folk music with some pop elements thrown in. The music and lyrics are usually of very low quallity. The performers are usually women that dress like whores as mentioned in the previous definition. However most of them are very good singers and work really hard, giving live performances 3-5 times a week.
(translated lyrics example)
...and don't say words of love to me,
I most love the wisper of money...
Bulgarian deformed and corrupted kinda music

The rocks are falling,

Green, green when all my money are green, green !
Greek and Turkish music which is stolen by low-intelligent Bulgarian musicians
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)
