The Bulchemists is a collective of seven young Bulgarian musicians residing in Amsterdam, Sofia, Vienna, Berlin and New York.
This ambitious project by Ambrol Iglenikov a.k.a. Joro, also a producer of the annual Balkan Fever Festival in Vienna, aims at presenting an intriguing image of contemporary Bulgarian jazz.
Dynamic, vibrant and emotional, Bulchemistry is uniquely rooted in traditional Bulgarian music. Vigorous irregular folk rhythms and modern jazz blend together in original compositions and daring improvisations. Surprising and ingenious, the Bulchemists conjure up a new element to contemporary jazz music.
