Radar Festival in Amsterdam

Prominent Bulgarian musicians meet local standouts - jazz, beatbox and electronics

It was a warm summer evening in August 2014 in Varna (Bulgaria), it was pouring with rain, when the Dutch avant-garde trio Tin Men and the Telephone were about to play the first concert of the newly found Radar festival. Unexpectedly, quite a few people showed up and filled the venue. The reactions to the concert were astounding!

Amsterdam-based jazz pianist and composer Dimitar Bodurov, co-founded the RADAR festival in his home town Varna (Bulgaria) aiming to present open-minded music projects that blend jazz, electronica, and video, with other arts and technology. As part of its 10th anniversary RADAR festival will descend on Amsterdam between 16-20 December with a series of exciting collaborations between prominent Bulgarian artists and local standouts. Dimitar has curated three concert evenings in Splendor, Sexyland, and Bimhuis.

Our Splendor host is the innovative pianist and geek Tony Roe, who will meet the same day the beatbox world-champion Skiller (BG) and upcoming saxophone player Hristo Goleminov (PT/BG). Bodurov will play a set together with renowned trumpet player Rossen Zahariev - Roko (BG) and the drummer sensation Sun-Mi Hong (KOR).

Expect an adventure evening from jazz and improv to electronica and beatbox. Check out the full program at: www.radar-festival.eu.
