First concert in America by Alexandra from Vidin

18.11.2018

Sonya Machorska

   More than 20 years ago, a little 6-year-old girl from Vidin began to learn how to play a gadulka with Lily Angelova, a teacher at Chivat Chitalishte - Vidin. This is Alexandra, which stands out with its incredible voice and musical talent. Now she and her family live in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. Recently they created the group for Bulgarian Folklore "Nomads" - she, her husband, another Bulgarian and two Americans. The Bulgarian folklore is collected. Yesterday, the band performed their first concert, which was a great success!

   “Thinking of nomads in more romantic ways rather than negative contemporary connotations, the name for our away-from-home musical creation "Nomadi" was a natural choice - musicians share. Ages ago the Bulgars, a semi-nomadic tribe, traveled west across continents on the back of their horses in search of the richest and most fertile lands. Much like that, we moved far west from our home country of Bulgaria to follow our dreams, provide what we think is a better life for our families, and pursue happiness. Although away from home, without even realizing we carry our past and history in our blood and bones; our Bulgarian culture, traditions, and genesis are steadily rooted in our hearts. They are running wildly through our veins and if you could listen well enough, you could hear the hooves of khans' and Bulgars' horses racing through the wind.”

   Alexandra Georgieva is a singer, songwriter and gadulka player born in Vidin, Bulgaria. At the early age of 6, she started taking gadulka lessons and was an active part of the cultural life of her hometown Vidin. She won many vocal and instrumental competitions and quickly became famous in the Bulgarian folk community being introduced as "the young Valya Balkanska". When she was 13 years old she started performing with the Dunav Folklore Ensemble both as a singer and gadulka player. When she was just 17 years old she became a vocal tutor at the International Summer Folk Seminar in the Academy of Music, Dance and Fine Arts in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. In 2008 she was a delegate in the European Parlament in Brussels, Belgium and the Representation of the State of Baden-Wurttenberg representing Bulgarian culture and folklore. She was the official face of Orfeevo Izvorche (a famous folk music competition) and in 2008 she became the face of the Koprivshtitsa Folk Sabor (festival). She got accepted in the Academy of Music, Dance and Fine Arts in Plovdiv and due to her extraordinary merits and achievements she received her 4-year Bachelor's degree in only 3 years. In the academy she was a part of the Academic Orchestra where she was a lead gadulka player. In 2012 she started writing and performing pop and soul music and has taken part in different concerts and competitions including the New York Times Songwriting Competition.
