    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.

  • Playlist By Nicky Fenix

    30 July 2015

    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.

    We don't know how many people know Alexander but every child knows Skiller - beatbox world champion. From Ovcha Kupel. He mixes genres and engraves soundly in many bands (these days, in Balkan Khans and Shamani Trio) continuing solo performances around the country and abroad.
  • Playlist By Borislav Dimitrov-Bobo

    16 July 2015

    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.
  • Playlist By Yassen Kozev

    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.

    She's almost 19 - spontaneous and surprising like a summer storm. She graduate Photography School and she is sallying out to National Academy For Theatre And Film Arts but she doesn't think to leave the guitar and singing. We know her in that role - Mila is playing at the streets and clubs.
  • Playlist By Bojidar Vassilev - TromBobby

    25 June 2015

    text Danislava Delcheva, photos Ralitsa Dimitrova

    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.
  • Jazz Do It

    18 June 2015

    Her name is Jazz, Jazz Mino. She is a busker - street performers are called that way in UK. They put some more artistry at London neighbourhoods Soho, Camden Town and Shoreditch. The news is that at the end of the month nine buskers will replace their working place in Sofia - from 29 June to 7 July being part of the initiative Sofia Welcomes the Streets of London by Beefeater.
  • The things of Life: Bora Dokle

    11 June 2015

    She has those piercing eyes that will win you over even before she starts singing. She comes in Bulgaria years ago to play the violin, but today we meet her on top of the bar she opens with Olya Mihailova and days before a live performance of Bora Dokle Project. The band of five will soon record their first album, and the bar will open officially - now you can be here only for plays, unplugged concerts and Monopoly in Sundays. In this whirpool of events, we find Bora very calm and ready to tell us all about the things in her life - but only after she appologizes five minutes for her being late by three. It's totally okay, now let's see what else is important, except for being on time.
  • The Dance Of The Stick

    11 June 2015

    We always talk about Ljubka Biagioni with respect. Because she is baroness Zu Guttenberg and because she is a conductor of a high European rank with a personal mission to popularize culture and our musical talent around the world.

    Everyone knows what an advantage is the pipe for the folklore music. But has anyone ever listened a song from Titanic played by this instrument?
  • The things of life: Victor Chuchkov

    26 March 2015

    He's half of Chuchkov Brothers - a production company, founded with his brother Borislav. But today we're not talking business - we met with Victor to discuss the things he loves and life in our city.
  • After 4

    26 March 2015

    New solo album, a tour, another new album with JP3, another tour. Because of this, Jivko Petrov cannot go out of his studio but we found another way to talk about him and his music - through four of his closest people. They are not four because this number is important for us but because it is for him. Listen...
  • The World Is For A Couple

    5 March 2015

    They often fly on a different planes but have a common home. Sometimes their jobs separate them but love always bring them together. When we met Rachel Row and Strahil Velchev a.k.a. DJ KiNk, there was one song that sounded in our heads - her Goreshto studeno, dedicated to him.
  • Attention, APE|MЕN!

    26 February 2015

    text Vladimira Nikolova

    They play together for a long time but recently they pulled the rabbit from the hat - they have released their new single Cash with a video by Rushi Vidinliev. After the tenth listening  we came to their studio to see how APE|MЕN create the magic.
  • Sweet Talks with Slatkaristika

    12 February 2015

    text Evelina Ivanova

    People in Skopije know him from all neighbourhoods. And they often quote him. Bum-bam, Dimi Dzham, Da Poletam are sung in Sofia after the first concert of Marko Marinkovic a.k.a. Slatkaristika last year. In his hip-hop, it is that way - the truth is on fire with the censorship and the plots are well connected with life. Days before his second concert in Sofia, we ask him is it sweet to be the first one in the Macedonian hip-hop (and what it is to wake up near Miss Macedonia).
  • Trusted Like FINK

    22 January 2015

    text Danislava Delcheva

    His musical trajectory is a circle: guitar - decks - guitar. The British guy Fink (or Fin Greenall as in passport) has passed through the techno to take out an awesome mix of indie rock, blues, dub and folk.
  • Nothing Artificial!

    text Sevda Semer, photos Ralitza Dimitrova

    If someone haven't seen Fake Fruits, probably he is out of the web. Which is unbelievable. Jeremy? has already caught our attention by their live shows but they put the exclamation mark with this song. It is terrible to say that "it cannot be Bulgarian" but we do. They are the band that everyone is all ears about.
  • Re: Rayna Kabaivanska

    4 December 2014

    To know the teacher, we asked the students. A week before the charity concert for the 80th anniversary of Rayna Kabaivanska, we got in touch with some of the best voices in her class who we will listen on 18 December.
