A Lo-Fi Journey into Heartland
Vozd In Traffic are a numerous band of friends who occasionally perform music together. Some of us are well- established and renowned musicians, having played for years in some of the most interesting underground jazz and rock bands of Bulgaria. Most of us, however, are happy and free-minded musical amateurs, unbound by rules and by the need to prove ourselves in the field. We believe that music is and must always remain the pure art it's always been to us, and it can never be created as a competition or as a means to overcome some personal weakness in society [how typical, eh:-) - who is not familiar with the dream of the ugly guitar player who thinks fame could buy him love?]. So, ars artis, as they say, and carpe diem.
We like to play whatever is on our minds and hearts. However, there have always been people asking, people who cannot feel safe unless you give them frames to stick to, that is - 'what style do you play in?'... well, the closest borders we can think of carry the labels dub, jazz, reggae, funk, and grunge, and maybe trash-jazz?:-) We make music mostly for our own fun, for the beauty of each moment, for the good vibe, for the fine feeling, for the daydreaming, and always as a shared experience with our faithful audience. The music we make is marked by infinite freedom of expressive means, improvisation, extreme use of the creative “now and loud” moment, silent moments of contemplation, the spiritual quest for the true, sincere, deep inner feeling of happiness and peace with oneself. Too grand, huh?:-)
