• The Sounds of Elby

    10 December 2015

    text Vera Gotzeva

    Dry statistics would say that Emilian Gatzov-Elby is a composer who often works on theater and dance spectacles (so far more than 50), has won an Ikar award for the Psychosis 4.48 music and constantly hovers around the continent to make music for various performances on stage.

    She's a trird of the Sentimental Swingers trio but she's a whole body of music. From her favourite jazz through hard metal, The Beatles and Depeche Mode, to Eminem, Vera finds herself in every song. At the moment her life is intense but her excitement compensates for that - the trio will celebrate their fifth birthday with a concert in Hall 1 at the National Palace of Culture. Before that there will be a screening of their premiere movie Life Is an Eternal Swing (filmed by Vera's husband, Andre Shandel). Clear your calendars for 18 November and now hear what her soundtrack sounds like.
  • An Orchestra of Four

    12 November 2015

    text Violeta Ivanova

    They're Hidden Orchestra but it's hard to have a conversation with four people, so we're talking to the main string - Joe Acheson. The instrumental magic he creates, together with Poppy Ackroyd on violin and piano and drummers Tim Lane and Jamie Graham, is flowing toward us on 21 November at Mixtape 5 - in the form of their newest Reorchestrations. We adjust ourselves to their frequency and ask Joe about everything that passes through his ears before it turns into music.
  • The things of life: Jose Gonzalez

    29 October 2015

    With only a few minutes of guitar and voice, he can melt anyone and anything. Now the situation is even more serious, because he's tuning in for longer and closer - the ticket is warm in our pocket ever since we found out about his concert in Studio Orfey, Noember 9. Before that, we sit with him and listen about the things from his life... Let's start from the beginning?
  • Hello, Tolstoy?

    29 October 2015

    text Еmanuela Ivanova

    Viktoria Tolstoy is a descendent of the person for whom you're thinking, but was born in Sweden. The mastery in storytelling starts to flow in her veins in 1974, and 20 years later has associated with music education and jazz. Since then, this "creative trio" has recorded her name on 11 music tomes. We open the last - A Moment of Now, on November 5 on Plovdiv Jazz Fest, where Viktoria comes with the co-author, the pianist Jacob Karlzon.

    He is a creative worker (at least this is his "state" work - for thousands of years is a copywriter, today Senior in Ogilvy), pop expert (the scattered half of the podcast Falshimento) and father (official partner for dance of the small Rada). Now he wants to do rockumentary and currently writes it. His playlists are different every time, this one is "as an autumn walk in the fog." Probably because of the time. Lets hear.
  • One Night With Edin Omanovich

    1 October 2015

    They called him Bagheera when he is in the role of a DJ (yes, that's the pal of Maugli) because he is a "cool beast" but his real name is N1 too - Edin. He went out of his personal book of the jungle some years ago when he started making the programme of KC Grad, one of the best clubs in Belgrade. Today he is already managing another one - ''concrete cathedral"as everyone calls the enormous agent on the club scene Drugstore. While talking, Edin is looking for renting a bus to come here this week on Serbian Nights - an evening of contemporary Serbian culture that includes a screening of the movie Ocean and a party with Bagheera and DJ Doo. We interrupt his mission for an hour to ask the cool beast about the night life in Belgrade and who is wearing foxes in the summer.

    You have to meet her for 15 minutes and you will see: Mila is inspired by singers like natural disasters and it's obvious. Did you hear the voice that reverberate in the beginning of Quartet by Yavor Gardev ? Well, it's hers. Besides she sings opera, she is busy with her mother's foundation for young artists (her mother is opera prima Darina Takova) and she takes part in international competitions, she is DJ and she writes with a great sense of humour. We met her while she was rehearsing for her concert on Piano Extravaganza Festival on 26 September.

    First of all, we apologize to Joro from Ostava for having a car fine while he was telling us about how someone can steal your Golf 2 in Pernik. Bad luck, indeed but the conversation was worth it. We have listened his songs for more than 15 years but today music starts from the 70s and points the way he has passed through. On Friday we will hear where is he now in music - Ostava will play their brand new songs from the upcoming album in Maimunarnika. Sit down here and listen, before the meeting there.

    Our day often begins with him. One of the voices of BNT says he loves to "buy light" and found the option to do it in journalism, by always looking white examples (like us).
    But why do we talk with Daniel Nenchev for his personal music instead of asking him what he thinks about public playlist? Because we've overheard the music from his headphones, we've seen him at million concerts and know that he is full of stories. Today we begin the day with them.

    We don't know her quite well here the way we want to. Because Irina Jekova-IRe bought her ticket for abroad a long time ago. After a few years in Paris, today she lives in Brussels and these days her holiday is in Lisbon where she listens fado. She makes trip-folk music with her friend Charlie Dalen and she mixes the acoustic guitar with the sound of the Balkans, India, Africa and - just a moment, please - everyday objects from different cultures. Soon we will hear this mixture at Beglika Fest where she will play for the first time her new EP - There Goes My Heart.

    He takes the distance between Universiada Hall and the centre for 5 minutes with a retro bike which is his favourite one - ït's so Italian disco". But it's not the speed we are interested in. Nikolay Fenixov or just Nicky Fenix has a lot to do with places like Hide and Jules Verne that makes him easily a DJ. He is also part of the team Disco Comrades together with Emil Angelov - Emil Doesn't Drive and Martin Koevski - Clipper.

    He is one of a kind. A rapper with a music degree and a talent not only in rhyming - Bobo writes lyrics and composes top songs for our playlist. He loves making featurings (with Grafa, Redman, Tony Zen) but he never neglects his band Bobo&TheGang (that will release its first album in fall) and his solo music (we've been waiting for his solo album for 10 years but it's still in progress). We caught him a moment before his summer tour with D2 - the band with which he releases the last single Together featuring Lora Karadjova. We said a lot of names but today we''re interesting in only one - Bobo and the songs which make him shivering, crying and burning.

    He has graduated clarinet and chamber music but he knows how to make pop for a stadium. We remember him from the electro ethno band Bulgaro before he finds his place in studio Module where he has composed songs for 12 years together with Krum Georgiev (now they released the new single of Orlin Pavlov). At the same time, Yassen Kozev is a chairman of Musicauthor and he hardly has a free minute. We met him between other two meetings of his to open his personal box with important music sheets, vinyls and songs and found out that he cannot remember names but he has never forgotten the feelings.

    TromBobby loves jazz and plays the trombone in Southwick and Dayo. The first band is recording its second album at the moment - Elementary Theory and the second one will play before Roy Hargrove at A to JazZ Festival on 3 July. We finish the calendar of Bojidar with the party in Backyard where he will be behind the decks on Saturday. Because there is nothing more baring for a musician than the songs that he hears in his head since he remembered himself. Turn on Youtube, we start.
