Vasil’s concept of mixing Balkan traditional, folk rhythms and melodies with modern
musical styles (most originating from the west, including: jazz; funk; avant garde;
electronica; rock; trance; and more) has been the impetus for creating his own
unique "musical hybrid," of sorts. This sophisticated sonic stew is completely original,
authentic and embraces a bold new approach to musical expression within the
context of the fusion and jazz genres.
It was this vision that inspired him to form The Vasil Hadzimanov Band, back in
1995 — when they made their first recordings and began performing live.
In 2001, the group released their first official album release, "11 reasons for…,"
published by the major Eastern European regional label, PGP-RTS
