Other info:

For centuries the gadulka has been among the most favourite instruments in Bulgaria. While in the past it was used only in some folk regions, today it is widely popular throughout the country. Since the middle of the 20th century, it has been invariably included in the folk music orchestras in all regions of Bulgaria. This brought about a change in the musical concept of the folk musicians. They began to unite melodies and techniques characteristic for various folk regions or other genres. They managed to prove that even though the gadulka is a more primitive instrument, it can still compete technically with the classical string instruments.
Peyo Peeev is among the most renowned young gadulka players. Born and brought up in the heart of Trakia (Southern Bulgaria), the musician’s first interest in music was connected with the children’s ensemble Zagorche, then he studied at the Philip Koutev Secondary School of Music in the town of Kotel (1989-1994) and the Academy of Music, Dance and Fine Arts in Plovdiv (1994-1998). His professional career began in the Philip Koutev State Ensemble of Folk Songs and Dances. After that he participated in the world-famous dance show Riverdance (1999-2000) and since 2000 he has been soloist in the Bulgarian National Radio Folk Music Orchestra. Peyo Peev has won twice the “Golden gadulka” prize named after the famous gadulka player Yanko Petrov (1996 and 1997), he participated in the world tour of the Mystery of Bulgarian Voices Choir in Hong Kong (1997) and is one of the founders of Academica formation (1998).
He gives concerts actively and participates in different projects with the world-famous musician Theodosii Spassov and the virtuoso players Petar Ralchev, Stoyan Yankulov, etc. These musicians also participate in the present release. Peyo Peev has also performed with different groups throughout Europe, the USA, Japan, and has made a lot of recordings.
The ten pieces included in this release are unique in their style and characterise his musical concept and creative imagination. They are real jewels, which skilfully combine both the traditional and contemporary approach.
