Aleksandar Petrov is a Macedonian born percussionist and a composer. His instrument of predilection is the Tapan, a traditional drum of his country with which he's been the rhythmical anchor of traditional folk orchestras since age of twelve. He lives now in Paris where he's had many encounters with jazz musicians. He is an astonishing and a creative musician who composes and plays an innovating and interesting music, never satisfied with placing side by side the music of his origins with other music, but mixing them to obtain a new elixir.
Bachar Khalifé is born in Beirut in 1983. His life is divided between performing and his classical percussion study in the National Superior Conservatory of music in Paris. This very brilliant young man plays with talent the vibraphone, darbouka, req and cajon. He uses every percussion as a solo instrument and his playing is marked by uncanny intuition and a masterful improvisational dexterity.
Vasil Hadzimanov is a pianist and lives in Belgrade after having spent five years in the United States. He studied in Boston from 1992 to 1995, in the famous Berklee College of Music and then moved to New York where he performed with great artists. Vasil is an appreciated musician for his pertinent way of playing rhythmical musical phrases which are a marvelous mixture of his own traditional influences and the be-bop. He reviews an instrumental technique which allows him to play a big range of sonorities with an ability to imply them while playing piano.
Theodossi Spassov a musician from Bulgaria, a sensational virtuoso on kaval, has a reputation of experimenting with musical styles and different musicians coming from various cultural and musical backgrounds. He has built an instrumental technique on his own, one that gives him freedom of expression and a variety of sounds that is rather unlikely to come out of such a simple instrument as the kaval.
