"Titla" means hard soil according to the Kostenets dialect. This is the sixth album of Theodosii Spassov, released by Gega New. He is featured here both as a performer and a composer. For those who follow the musician's development, the programme is yet another proof of his unlimited talent to improvise, to combine different styles and genres and to amaze his listeners. Just as in the previous releases, we see his cooperation here with other fellow musicians.
