PostSubject: Bon-Bon from Bulgaria.   Tue 23 Feb - 5:42

This is just a start for a new thread I said I would start. It is for one of my top, top favorite Girl Singing groups. I am running out of time, so this is just a start. I will be back soon to do more. Anyone who likes this group and wants to add a favorite video, that would be wonderful that I don´t have to do all the work. Very Happy

Please members of the forum, look for good photos of this group and let me know of any recordings for sale. Thanks.

It was maybe about 1 1/2 years ago that I first found the video of these Girls doing their song for JESC in 2007. This was BonBolandia. I used to think they were a new group formed just to perform at the contest. However, after finding many videos on Youtube and looking further, and even finding a couple videos in which they are even younger, I realized that most of these girls had been on an ongoing popular t.v. and performance group from Bulgaria for a few years before. This show and larger childrens singing group chose these girls to represent Bulgaria in JESC 2007. This was because they had relaxed the rule that the kid performers could not have had a professional singing career prior to the participation.

From this page http://www.oikotimes.com/v2/index.php?file=articles&id=1587

After the Armenia, now Eurovision-Cyprus can exclusive reveal you the new official video clip of the Bulgarian representative in Junior Eurovision 2007. Bon - Bon with Bonbolandiya will represent for the first time the country in Junior Eurovision.

Band "Bon Bon" was created in 1995 by Rozi Karaslavova. Members of the vocal-dance group are 35-40 children aged 3 to 15, talented and artistic. "Bon-Bon" is the most popular children ensemble in the country with perfect and modern sound and original songs. Band has taken part in many prestigeous contests and festivals, and also was regular guest in music events and TV shows. Ensemble has own recording studio. Best composers, songwriters and arrangers are working with group. Victoria Finci works on solfeggio and theory, Jasmina Stoyanova and Gergana - choreography; Vanya Ivanova is responsible for staging, plastics and diction. Children from "Bon-Bon" sing duets with most famous Bulgarian pop-singers such as Iordanka Hristova, Georgi Hristov, Neli Rangelova and others.

"Bon-Bon" has own TV show, which is being broadcasted for 10 years on BTV. It develops good taste between youth and develop young viewers with games and other activities.

Kids, who will represent Bulgaria in Junior Eurovision: Joanna, Nicol, Isabel, Blagovesta, Monica, Dea, Nicol and Marina are studying in "Bon-Bon" group from the early age and have big experiense of participation in concerts, recordings, advertising. They spend most of time together, even resting on school holidays. They are learning singing, dancing, sports, foreign languages and playing on musical instruments.

On this page we read a message from the Girls. http://www.esctoday.com/news/read/9714

The band says about the entry:

"We wrote our first song BonBolandia together. We are very proud because it shot us up to the top! First track, first place at the first JESC in Bulgaria – isn’t it just great!!!
We had little time to make up the music and lyrics. Nobody thought how serious we meant to be. Our parents couldn’t believe that instead of playing, we gathered and wrote in notebooks, or discussed the progress of the song on skype. As a result we got wonderful lyrics.

The tunes came in our heads one after the other and we enjoyed this lot. All of us turned up with an idea and wrote it in their mobiles and the „auditions” were great fun. We wanted it to be nice, so that everyone could catch up with BonBolandia. BonBolandia, apart from a country of dances and songs, is our world of games, dreams, secrets and adventures. We feel great here.

We had to work, dance and sing hard – in fact, what we love doing. We thank our music coaches for their patience and for always telling us that we can make it."

Only makes sense to start with their JESC song and video. There are actually several versions of this on youtube, including a music video.






They sing a few songs in English. Here is one of them. The girl who sings solo first in these next two videos is my favorite. Anyone know her name?





Quite an interesting music video by them here.

Very good thread. I have to check it when I'll have more time. You made a nice job !
I like Bon-Bon. But it's weird, some songs are really kiddy and some are more trendy. Shocked

My favorite song :

Well Rakugaki, I think the answer to what you say is in the first part of my post where it explains how Bon-Bon for JESC was created out of an existing larger group of kids that had been in a regular t.v. show and performance group for a few years already and I think still continues. There are a few other videos on youtube that have the Bon-Bon name and it is not the group of eight girls we know better, but maybe just one or two of them along with other kid singers. I will post a couple examples. After their JESC event, it seems they kept them together to do more music and more videos and I really like much of that. I am hoping to find really good quality videos of the main 8 Girl group, and I also hope to find the music for sale. You can help me find this if you want. Very Happy

Here is a good example. I am guessing this one was done maybe just before they formed for the JESC event.




And look at this one! My favorite that I mentioned in the earlier post is the first soloist in this. Look how young she is here. I think maybe only 6 or 7.

I already said that I loved Bon-bon in JESC!
It is so cool with a thread for them, I did not know their back-history.
I think your favourite is named Niki Rizova

And you posted their national final performance, here is their JESC performance Smile

I am still hoping to find photos, and some kind of music or videos for sale. Even some mp3 downloads would be better than nothing. I would love to have some high quality videos. I will be looking and hopefully some of you out there in forumland will do me a favor and look also. In the meantime, here is one of the more ´kiddy´videos as Rakugaki called them.

Thanks Stardust! Good to see someone who likes them like I do. Niki it is then. Caroline said the same name. The first photo of her is not so good, but the second one is. I think these photos are sort of recent. I believe these girls are now about 13 or so. In JESC 2007, they were about 10 I am guessing. Does this sound right to you? Besides being on a JESC compilation, do you know of any DVD or CDs for sale? Would love to have high quality videos especially. Anyway, thanks again Stardust.

Those photos are from the BonBon calendar shoot and are only a few months old Razz
With the CD, are you just after the JESC bonbons or the older ones?
Yeah they are all around 13, except Marina who is 17 (but has quit). And Jo is like 11 or 12. There's a new group of Bonbons who are about 6-8 including Izabel's sister Lora Very Happy
Here are some of the younger ones:


Yes, sisters :O

Hey Stardust! Thank you so much for your photo additions and information. I forgot to ask before, where are you finding these photos? I have done a Google search and came up with nothing. Where do you find the information? You seem to know names and everything. The info on your profile does not say much.

I am looking mostly for anything in good quality video, DVD or CD from beginning with there stuff with the t.v. show up until recently. In other words, the songs or videos that have been posted in this thread. As far as I know, only Bonlandia is available to buy or find on the Internet. Interesting to see that they are getting new members. I guess that is because they are from a t.v. show production company.

Two more videos.

The vocals for this group are usually good for me. They certainly hit the right notes. Of course, most of their stuff is not live. I like that there is a lot of variety of styles in song, dance, videos and all the several girls do solos, so lots of variety in that too. As stated before, for Girl Groups of more than 3 members, they may be my favorite, just beating out 5 Angels.

Helena Paparizou's songs those two last ones.

I like their voices in some videos, not so much in others.

So Rakugaki, the song titles on the CDs on the site you mention are not the same as any of these songs in these videos posted in this thread?

Hey Stardust. Maybe I missed something. Who is Monica and what does she have to do with Bon-Bon? It just seems so strange to me that they would put money and effort into all these productions and videos and not record them profesionally either onto CDs or DVDs. That is a terrible waste if true.

Wow one of them is even from 2009. I think it is albums from the whole group and not the 8/7 Bon-Bon girls as we know them.
On the two first ones it says that the product is not avaliable but you can express your intrest on the mail adress. The other two (the newest) you can order.
Google tranlsation helps me. Smile
