The two brothers Dimitar and Nedko Bogdanov and the daughter of Dimitar – Ani, present their fascinating music. It is based on Bulgarian folk music expressed through the concept of the three musicians. Every song and instrumental piece is written in the spirit of the folk traditions, but the musicians have also used techniques which are typical of some other genres. They impress with their thorough knowledge of folk music and at the same time – with their incredible perception of music, marked improvisation and proficiency in mastering the voice and the instrument. Theodosii Spassov writes in the notes to the CD: “The pieces in the CD have been created and presented in very good taste, inventiveness and a feeling of humour, which characterizes every professional musician that works with creativity and constructive freedom.”
Dimitar and Nedko finished the Philip Koutev Secondary School of Music in Kotel, while Ani is still a student of music with main subject at school – folk singing. Dimitar Bogdanov played with some of the most renowned wedding orchestras in Bulgaria, and since 1998 he has been working with his brother and is soloist of the Mladi Trakiitsi orchestra. Nedko has also worked with many wedding orchestras. Both of them have great success in presenting their project Sharena Sol (Mixed Salt) in Bulgaria and Europe.
