Here’s some more footage from last summer in Bulgaria last summer. This time we are in the Trakia region, city of Plovdiv, where the 20th International Folklore Festival took place. The afternoon was very hot and this was the last day of the festival. There were folk groups from Bulgaria and also from other countries. TheContinue reading “20th International Folk Festival Plovdiv 2014”
This week I started to put some bass tracks with my friends of Lulas Belhas. As this year I haven’t made any special Christmas video, I post here Lulas Belhas’ Christmas message (in Portuguese). Of course you can still re-visit some of my previous Christmas clips, such as Run With The Fox, Personent Hodie orContinue reading “Merry Christmas & Happy New Year”
And now for something completely different… It’s… one of my ever favourite basslines, played by REO Speedwagon’s Bruce Hall.
Continuing to present my video recordings from Bulgaria last summer, we travel to the southeast, to the Pirin mountains. The festival “Pirin Sings” was one of the highlights from my stay in Bulgaria. You will see the atmosphere of this festival: performances, rehearsals and surroundings – all in a beautiful scenery of Predel, Razlog. The mainContinue reading “Pirin Sings”
Some videos that I made during this summer’s visit to Bulgaria. This is a festival organized for Bulgarian folk groups living abroad.

It’s unusual that I post on my channel clips from other performers but this footage from a show that I attended was one of the most fascinating musical experiences that I witnessed. This is the children’s choir of Tokushima, Japan. I love choirs and vocal harmonies and this brilliant performance really touched me. I amContinue reading “Tokushima Children Choir”
Today I found on YouTube the release of one of my previous bands (Caffeine) last album. As I remember it was recorded around 2005. I used my Fender Jazz Bass on all tracks. Here is one of the tracks and the others are also available on the same channel.
Last month, the collective “P.R.E.C” presented a live soundtrack performance for the film “The Fall of the House of Usher”. The music was totally improvised. If you are interested in these forms of sonic expression, you can access the recorded performance by downloading the file or listening in streaming. Personally, I find this kind ofContinue reading “The Fall of the House of Usher”
In the last month of may, I attended for the fourth time the improvised music encounter MIA 2013. This was again a very rewarding experience, having the opportunity to be close and to play with a different kind of musicians with various musical backgrounds but united to explore and discuss improvisation and music.
Here is the latest video-clip from Lulas Belhas. Our new album will be out soon and is currently mixing. This video was produced by our friends at Timelapse-Media. I will post soon some bass audio clips from the recording sessions.
