О, аз си спомням, спомням си… Ти бе опряла гръб о нямата тополка, забита във вечерното небе, като антена на копнеж и болка. Тогаз посегнах и нощта прозвънна, нощта прекрасна музика роди. Небето във очите ти потъна, и аз докоснах с устни две звезди. ------------------------------------ O, I do remember, remember I do... You were leaning on the silent poplar, perched in the evening sky like an antenna tuned to longing and pain. Then I reached out a hand and the night resonated, giving birth to heavenly music. The sky sank into your eyes, and my lips touched two stars.

A lembrança que me vem Quando a chuva me desperta É um sonho que guardei De um lugar que o tempo esquece Tem o Sol de uma manhã E um azul que não se faz Uma brisa doce e um som Igual ao abraço Faz a gente ir tão longe E ainda assim, protegido Acalma o peito, revela a paz Aquece o coração Alma livre pra dançar E um novo dia começou Sinto fome de emoções Quero as notas da canção Essa que me faz lembrar Que o momento é quem decide De fazer que valha à pena Igual ao abraço Fugir desse encontro é Não amar a vida Simplesmente acorde, é manhã E a chuva Inventa alegria, se entrega À pura sorte Nada mais lhe importa, além do amor E te chama Faz o mundo parar pra dizer Não é impossível Encontrar a razão, em si, em fim. -------------------------------------- The nicest thought that comes to me when the rain wakes me up, is of a dream I kept, of a place never forgotten, a morning breaking sun, an unsaid blue, a sweet breeze and a sound like an embrace. It makes us wander far and yet, protected it calms our heart, unveils peace, warms the soul. Free to dance, a new day has begun. I hunger for emotions, I want the notes of the song, the one which makes me remember. The moment decides if it is worth it, like the embrace. Running away from this is like not to be in love with life. Just wake up, it is morning and the rain devises happiness, renders to sheer chance. Nothing matters but love, and it calls you, it makes the world stop to say it's not impossible, find the reason, in itself, at last.

Вятър черни кадели развлача, Вятър нишки дъждовни преде. А край мене в капчуците плаче, не дойде, не дойде, не дойде… Не се сърдя, любимо момиче. Аз разбирам, дъждът те е спрел. Тоз от двамата, който обича, е дошел… ---------------------------------------- The wind weaves black blue clouds Black blue clouds gush out rain in bouts All around me raindrops are drumming on the rooftops: She didn’t come x3 Beloved girl, I am not cross Then I know it was the rain that made me wait in vain. Yet, of both, the one who loves has come…

Потъпках своите надежди, постлах невидима тъга, залостих спомените и мечтите и зачаках прощалната луна. Оставих скъпите си дни, заминах и забравих. Забравих да предам, прощалния си блян на залеза и тишината x 4 ------------------------------------- I dashed my hopes, Spread invisible sorrow, Locked the memories and the dreams, And set out to wait for the farewell moon. Precious days left behind, I went away and forgot. Forgot to leave my parting dream To the sunset and to the silence.

about

The 12 original compositions on the newest album “Dedicated Sounds” 2014 by the Wladigeroff Brothers display their unmistakable characteristic touch. On this album they flirt absolutely consciously with art pop sounds and modern grooves derived from Latin and funk. Particular highlights are the eponymous “Dedicated Sounds” track as well as the very inspired song and reprise “In Front of the Train”, with beautiful poetic lyrics by the great Bulgarian writer Vladimir Bashev (1935 -1967).
Musicians from Colombia to South Africa such as Juan Garcia “Snow Owl” Hererros, Flip Philipp, Roberto Quintero, Peter Herbert, Vassil Petrov, Stoyan Yankoulov, Janice Kern, Daniel Mesquita and many others are featured on this album. These exceptional artists fill it with a rainbow spectrum of fresh and unexpected tonal combinations. An explosion of pleasurable acoustic associations arise while listening to “Dedicated Sounds”: Sting is conjured up by the lyrical songs with their texts in Portuguese, French and Bulgarian. Stevie Wonder and Take 6 come to mind during the ballads, while old masters George Duke and Jeff Lorber are evoked on the instrumental numbers – one track is even dedicated to Lorber. The Wladigeroff Brothers are musical contemporaries of Lizz Wright, Cécile McLorin Salvant and Sachal Vasandani, and like them, deliver the finest melodious acoustic-electric jazz mix to be found today.
Boris Pasternak said that “talent in the highest and widest sense of the word is a gift of life”. With the feel-good album “Dedicated Sounds” the Wladigeroff Brothers once again share their unique musical talent with us, their soulful joy and energy, and we gladly accept their gift.
(Renée Gadsden)
