Isihia is the musical tale of the times of the most genuine belief in the history of the Bulgarian spiritual life - Hesychasm. Isihia is the musical glance back to the history of the Bulgarians. The very end of the 20th century was a time of severe trial for the Bulgarian people and the Balkan peoples as a whole, whose belonging to the European Christian civilization both in geographical and cultural, as well as in historical aspect is certainly doubtless. Most threatening to the Bulgarian nation today are not the political failures, the economic instability, not even the demographic collapse, but the weakness and impersonality of spirit. In such times, each nation turns to the stronghold of its traditions and history where its hidden strength lies.
It is to reach the roots of that strength and to draw invigorating spirit from the shell of the Bulgarian identity that Isihia was born for, Isihia - the bridge from the past to the present. The ancient spirit of the Bulgarian land, whose roots have been marked by the cultures of Thraceans, Romans, Slavs, Proto-Bulgarians, Byzantines and Ottoman Turks - a spirit combining the pagan and Christian traditions is the strength giving inspiration and creating the musical aesthetics of Isihia.
