Interview

SINCE WHEN HAVE YOU BEEN INTO MUSIC AND HOW DID YOU DECIDE TO START?
I have been involved in music for almost 5 years. I have loved the sound of the kaba bagpipe since I was a child, but I never thought I would be able to learn to play. Seeing this interest of mine, they gave me the first bagpipe and I immediately started actively going to lessons to improve.


WHICH SONG DO YOU REMEMBER MOST OF YOUR CHILDHOOD?
"Tulip swings" - this is the brightest musical memory for me from kindergarten, where we were taught folk songs and dances.


WHO ARE THE ARTISTS YOU HAVE LISTENED TO AND PLAYED THE MOST?
The old Rhodope musicians and ensembles such as 100 kaba bagpipes, 101 kaba bagpipes, Dafo Trendafilov, Radka Kushleva and many, many others.


IN WHICH MUSICAL STYLE ARE YOU MOST ADVANCED?
Bulgarian folk music from the region of the Rhodope Mountains.


WHAT DOES MUSIC GIVE YOU?
Music is an emotion that cannot be described. It gives you freedom, memories, a way to express yourself, to detach yourself from everything around you and most of all pleasure - both to listen to it and to perform it.


WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO START TEACHING MUSIC?
In order for the Rhodope Kaba Gaida to reach as many people as possible and in this way to preserve the authentic Bulgarian folklore, which is vast and preserves our traditions and history.


WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO LEARN IN MUSIC?
That without discipline, dedication and many rehearsals you can't progress in music.


WHAT IS ROCKSCHOOL FOR YOU?
A chance to pass on what I can and know to as many people as possible who are passionate about this type of music.


WHICH MUSIC IS VALUABLE TO YOU?
Any kind of music that can touch you in any way and is full of attitude, professionalism and measure is valuable music.


WHAT IS THE MOST EXTRAVAGANT THING YOU HAVE LISTENED LATELY?
The Badpiper Thunderstruck.


DO YOU HAVE A DREAM RELATED TO MUSIC?
To continue to improve and learn to play at least one other musical instrument.
