• 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...

    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.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Blame it on the moon...

    She is a believer in happy ends but she is not into that talk about the moon and the stars. She can dance with torches but she ain't an early bird. She's studying sound design and she knows all of Upsurt's songs by heart. So naturally the hip-hoppers are now also humming to the tune of Kato na san (Just Like in a Dream). The song was released just a few days ago and Maria Dragneva herself is only 22. This is her first solo project and the video, we must admit, is simply hypnotic.

    He listens to k-pop for only two weeks, but for years selects music is part of the nightlife of the city. In daylight he makes illustrations, paintings, interior design and even wallpapers if someone ordered. Yasen Zgurovski is Bulgarian artist with Russian passport who is recently busy with anything and anywhere. Raised with free lessons for life from old Plovdiv Bohemia, he was the colorful child of our possible pop culture.

    Bold curls, pearls, bright lipstick and flirty dresses in all colors of the rainbow! Sounds like a prop from an old movie, but actually it is recognizable traditional dress code of the funniest in our community - that of swing fans. You've probably seen these men and women at retro parties or other special events, wondering how they always manage to look so casual but always chic. The answer is in the music, and it is the language of the soul, according to Yavor and Sonya - two of the most popular swing dancers in the country, which are also part of the team Lindyhop.bg, one of the few specialist dance schools in Bulgaria. Here's what else they shared one devoid of formality, but curious afternoon conversation.
