WHY SUPPORT VALKANIA CREATE A PROMO VIDEO?
"Because of our cultural legacy."
Take for example our song FROZEN SOULS (Души Смрзнати, http://tinyurl.com/frouls).
Its base is Tsamiko, a mesmerising 3/2 rhythm used in Albania, Macedonia and Greece.
The chord-progression is made of blues and rock ballad elements.
Tsifteteli in Cm, performed by Valkania in December 2014 at Luna Lounge, London.
Tsifteteli in Cm is an original instrumental, with the main theme performed on a Greek bouzouki.
It's represents a fusion of Arabic, Greek and Funk music.
Viktor Mastoridis - bouzouki
Nikolay Baldaranov - guitar
Andy Dewar - percussion
Emmanuel Man - bass
Riverman by Nick Drake is one of the rare British pop/rock songs that are in uneven rhythm, 5/8.
However, with Valkania we wanted to take it even further, so we extended the song to 11/8!
With Andy Dewar percussion, Nikolay Baldaranov guitar, Emmanuel Man bass and Viktor Mastoridis vocals and guitar.
After many years of preparations, an innovative project for music education in primary schools is seeing the light of day. it's name is: Let's Musicise.
