The Bodurov Trio plays contemporary jazz with classical piano influences and Bulgarian folk songs. A poignant voice opens their new album: a sample of an older singer singing a Bulgarian folk song with a dark undertone can be heard in the title track 'Senkya Padna'. It forms the basis for the dynamic interplay of piano, double bass and drums typical for the Bodurov Trio. The trio performs at Bimhuis.
About Bodurov Trio
The Bodurov Trio is known for the dynamic interplay of piano, double bass and drums. The jazz trio shows strong influences from folk music but also classical composition. Jazz pianist Dimitar Bodurov, originally from Bulgaria and based in Amsterdam, remains fascinated by traditional singing and melody from his native country, which he incorporates into his compositions. Yet his trio sounds distinctly contemporary, with tight interplay in lively-sounding time signatures. The Bodurov Trio has already released six albums and collaborated with illustrious names such as the celebrated Bulgarian flautist Theodosii Spassov, the Norwegian saxophonist Trygve Seim, and the Israeli trumpeter Itamar Borochov.
