About The BEDLAM CLUB: The Bedlam Club is an international instrumental cinematic punk jazz band created in Sofia, Bulgaria on the day of the Apocalypse, the 22nd of December 2012. Its first iteration was called Ghostnote, it was composed by Tavis Preston (Scotland) on double bass and Samuel Pocreau (France) on keys and clarinet. Both already had played together in another Sofia-based band, Mad Maria.

During summer 2013, the duo was joined by Dmitry Yagodin on drums (Kaka Siara, Reactija, Jezzve); still under the name Ghostnote, the band played their first concert as a trio at the Nishto Podobno festival.

In October 2013, the last member, percussionist Georgi Popov (Bulgaria), joined the ensemble; the last concert as Ghostnote was played at Maze, for the Alarma punk Jazz Fest. The Bedlam Club was officially born.

The name itself means “contained madness”; could be described as a punk band playing retro movie music with a Jazz flair.

Kottarashky & The Rain dogs / 8 BGN

kottarashky and the rain dogs

Kottarashky aka Nikola Gruev opened the door to hitherto undiscovered spaces of Balkan music with his first album "Opa Hey!" in 2009. His approach of using a collection of sounds taken from authentic field recordings is quite similar to artists like Amon Tobin, the only difference being that Gruev found and recorded his sources in the Bulgarian countryside. Combining these, he initiated a tribal digital dance music that went far beyond either the mash up culture of contemporary global producers or the art collages of modern sound architects. He simply amazed with compositions that are extremely complexly woven, yet at the same time catchy, and full of joy or melancholy. At the time however, Kottarashky was unknown, even within his local scene in Bulgaria. It was all the more unbelievable that this dude, who was actually a full-time architect, was producing outstanding tunes and unique rhythms such as these in his back office that were completely unconnected with any popular scenes.


TUESDAY (06.12.2016) From 22:00


Ruth Koleva

Born into a volatile world of corruption and hardship in post-Communist Eastern Europe, she endured a difficult childhood largely spent without her mother, found salvation in the classics (Marvin Gaye, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole) and became ‘tour-hardened’ by jaunts to far-flung destinations such as India and Thailand in the company of her Olympian father (a weightlifting coach). From there, Koleva quickly developed into a rounded musician, spending an eye-opening year at the Hollywood Pop Academy and embarking on free-spirited excursions into several local scenes including soul, hip hop and the more ephemeral but nonetheless popular bass movement. All this before the age of 18.

Her debut album, RUTH, featured a diverse array of talent – including keyboardist Vincent Helbers (Seravince, Flowriders) and drummer Richard Spaven (Jose James, Guru, Flying Lotus) – and scooped the top prize at the BG Radio Awards in 2014. Hit-making producer Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen) called it “amazing” and radio DJs such as Huey Morgan (BBC 6Music) were lining up to spread the word. She was also named Best Female Vocalist at the Jazz Ain’t Jazz Awards in Japan, beating the likes of Coco from Quadron. A remix project featuring Mark De Clive-Lowe, Kaidi Tatham, Opolopo and Maddslinky (aka Zed Bias) will follow.
