Theodosii Spassov with Folk Project Band & Tatyana Sarbinska
The opening of Bulgarian May will feature the world renowned KAVAL (Bulgarian flute) player and  GRAMMY Award winner THEODOSII  SPASSOV, the brilliant, "Voice of PIRIN" TATIANA SARBINSKA, and the Bulgarian virtuosos of the THEODOSII SPASSOV FOLK PROJECT BAND, Peyo Peev  (gadulka), Ivan Georgiev  (bagpipe), Genadiy Rashkov  (drums), and Petar Milanov  (guitar, tambura). The kaval, an eight-hole wooden shepherds flute, is one of the oldest instruments in Europe, rich in tone and technical possibilities. Theodosii Spassov has developed his own unique style of playing the instrument by synthesizing traditional folklore with jazz, fusion and classical music.  For over 20 years, Theodosii has toured all over Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Australia, Canada and United States.
Theodosii Spassov was born in 1961. He began his early training on the kaval at the Filip Kutev National School of Folk Arts in Kotel and the Academy of Music, Dance and Fine Arts in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. For over 20 years, Theodosii has toured all over Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Australia, Canada and United States. In 1994, he performed with Sofia Women's Radio Choir which was awarded with a Grammy award for Le Mystre Des Voix Bulgares. In April 1995, Newsweek magazine recognized Theodosii Spassov as one of the most talented Eastern-European musicians in its Best of the East article, noting that "Spassov is not merely surviving the post-communist cultural wasteland. He has actually invented a new musical genre."
Theodosii Spassov has recorded 10 solo albums and has contributed to 11 albums by fellow artists, which have been noted worldwide. He has composed and performed numerous film scores including the French-Bulgarian feature film Granitza, (The Border) in 1993. He has also recorded themes for films by Italian composers Carlos Siliotto and Ennio Morricone (An Italian Story and The Breakout of the Innocent).
At home in Bulgaria, Theodosii Spassov is a national figure and musical hero, and was recently honored with the Music Artist of the Year award. He is Artistic Director of the world-renowned Filip Kutev National Folk Song & Dance Ensemble
