Line up

  • Big Band of BNR
  • Teodosii Spasov (Kaval)

Theodosii Spassov, “the best kaval on the planet”, presents yet another original programme (so far Gega New has released five of his albums). In this CD the pieces were recorded together with the Big Band of the Bulgarian National Radio. Against the background of the orchestra sound, the release also includes two works for piano and kaval. Theodosii Spassov is the first Bulgarian musician who successfully synthesizes Bulgarian folk music with other genres, mostly jazz. His first attempts were in his student years, and his project with Milcho Leviev (1990) leads him to the world stage. This is followed by his concerts with Albert Mangelsdorf, with the percussionist from India Trilok Gurtu, the ethno-jazz stars Rabih Abou-Khalil and Glen Velez, the Canadian singer Kareen Young, Andy Sheppard, Mark Johnson, the Greek musicians Dionisis Savopulos, Kostas Theodorou, the world- famous Riverdance formation... Theodosii Spassov has played with almost all Bulgarian jazz musicians. Recently, he has cooperated with colleagues from the Balkan countries. Together they have launched two projects – “Balkan Horses” and “Balkan Winds. His music has been warmly applauded in Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Finland, Germany, Greece, Holland, India, Israel, Japan, Nepal, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, the U.K., the USA and many more countries.
