Due to a sudden illness of Oratnitza’s musical frontman - Hristiyan Georgiev (kaval, synths, keys) the whole band is not able to come to Retroperspektywy Festival. Nevertheless Oratnitza - being a true charizmatic group, inspored by folklore wonders - will prepare an ad hoc show, specially for the audience in Lodz. Expect a concert of traditional Bulgarian folklore, spearheaded by Diyana Vassileva (solo singer of the Mystery of Bulgarian Voices choir), flanked by Asya Pincheva, Stefan Cekov on the traditional tupan, and Georgi Marinov on the Rhodope gaida. The concert will be concluded by a semi-acoustic DJ set, fusing authentic mysticality with masterfully engineered electronic vibes.
DESCRIPTION OF THE CONCERT:
Oratnitza are six young Bulgarian musicians who share a love for both - folklore and contemporary bass genres. They hence call their unique sound “ETHNOBASS”. Ever since their birth, Oratnitza has been driven by their curiosity to find out what lies beyond the musical status quo. This has made them take Bulgarian folklore on a wild journey. Over the years their repertoire has absorbed colors and scents from the local underground and distant continents alike. Bringing home the treasures from their explorations, they pass on the torch of tradition.
INFORMATION ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Oratniza - is a blend of Bulgarian folk melodies, orthodox-style chanting, world music elements, hip-hop, dubstep, trap, D’n’B, and irregular rhythms. Oratniza interprets Bulgarian traditional songs in a way our generations can truly embrace.
