about

The Wladigeroff family tree is so widespread and complex, that one could lose one’s orientation studying it! The mother an actress, the sister musician, the father a conductor; they even are related to the creator of Dr. Zhivago, Boris Pasternak. Talented and multifaceted: the name Wladigeroff is a synonym for artistic enjoyment of the highest quality. Musicians in the third generation, the Wladigeroff Brothers Alexander and Konstantin were born in Sofia in 1978 and demonstrated prodigious musical talent at an early age. These identical twins, just like their grandfather Pancho Wladigeroff and his twin brother Lyuben, are renowned Bulgarian composers and musicians–Pancho is considered by all means to be Bulgaria’s most important composer. He combined idioms of Bulgarian folk music with the Western art music tradition.
Such an enormous cultural and spiritual heritage could be a heavy burden, but the Wladigeroff Brothers handle it with ease. Alexander (trumpet, flugelhorn, piano) and Konstantin (piano, clarinet, composition and vocals) studied briefly at the Pancho Wladigeroff Music Academy in Sofia, before setting their sails in the direction of Vienna to perfect their art through study and practice. Very quickly the brothers became highly sought after session and theater musicians, with an excellent reputation in Austria and abroad. Already on their debut album “Wanderer in Love“ 2007 they were able to achieve a musical distance to their family clan and shape their own creative profile. With the album “For the Greatest Little Things” 2011 their striving for an ideal fusion of Balkan melodies with gentle jazz sounds reached new heights.
The 12 original compositions on the third album “Dreaming of Dreams” 2014 by the Wladigeroff Brothers display their unmistakable characteristic touch. They call it a “soundtrack for the listener’s fantasy”. On this album they flirt absolutely consciously with art pop sounds and modern grooves derived from Latin and funk. A particular highlight is the eponymous “Dreaming of Dreams” track that is dedicated to their sister Ekaterina and “Los Gallos de la Habana”, a song inspired by a trip to Cuba.
Musicians from Colombia to South Africa such as Juan Garcia Herreros, Flip Philipp, Roberto Quintero, Marta Pulido, Stoyan Yankoulov, Kiril Valeri, Janiz Kern, Daniel Mesquita & Melissa Cileman among others are featured on this double 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 “Dreaming of Dreams”: Stevie Wonder and Take 6 come to mind during the ballads, while old masters like George Duke and Jeff Lorber are evoked on the instrumental numbers, and Sting is conjured up by the lyrical songs with their texts in English and Spanish. The Wladigeroff Brothers are musical contemporaries of Lizz Wright 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 “Dreaming of Dreams” the Wladigeroff Brothers once again share their unique musical talent with us, their soulful joy and energy, and we gladly accept their gift.

Track Name: Los Gallos De La Habana (Featuring Marta Pulido) [The Hens Of Havana]
Lyrics:

Habana, los gallos,
los gallos de La Habana

La Habana
despertando de trasnochar
sale a rumbear su amanecer
los gallos, emocionados al cantar
contagiaràn a la ciudad...


-----------------------------------

Havana, the hens
the hens of Havana

The Havana, wakes up
after a long night
and celebrate that the sunrise
already comes
the exited hens
have spread the mornings song
and the whole city
absorb with pleasure
this inalienable sensation...
Track Name: To Kalin (Featuring Kiril Valeri)
Lyrics:

A bottle of wine, on a glass table
Two glasses one glance,
now it's only still,
One glass is standing there alone,
Brother,
so why are you in such a hurry, where to?

But you are on your way now,
That's what you've decided,
And nobody can ever stop you here,
how strong must have you been to brace your final day,
so that your God can meet you face to face

A guitar is forever silent,
a mother has no tears.
And all of us, and all the friends,
we love him so
we feel the grief, we feel the pain
in our hearts
oh it hurts...
Track Name: Don't Say Goodbye (Featuring Janiz Kern)
Lyrics:

How can we say goodbye we've never met,
Why do we always try to look ahead
and every thing's now clear,

Don't be blind for who we are
now that we have go so far,
how can we be afraid of shining like a star.
Don't be blind for who we are,
now that we have go so far,
how can we say goodbye we have just met.

Whenever we are smiling many rainbows,
shine above over us
and than we finally see our colors.
We're flying in our dreams,
we are living,
stop fighting there's no use to
Try to understand this magic,
why do we smile and cry,
Why are we always searching the wonder of our lives.

Don't be blind for who we are,
now that we have gone so far
How can we be afraid of shining like a star (+2)
Don't be blind for who we are,
now that we have gone so far,
How can we say goodbye when we have never met,
not yet, not yet.
Track Name: Un Tierno Abrazo (Featuring Marta Pulido) [A Warm Embrace]
Lyrics:

Dame un tierno abrazo quema
y devora esta extraña timidez
sientes como tiemblan mis sueños?
ven amor, que de amor quiero hablarte
palpame con tus besos
y librame de los miedos y el tiempo

Dame un tierno abrazo,
desprendete de temores del ayer
trae de paso al olvido y hechemolos a volar
ven amor, que de amor quiero hablarte

Toca mis pensamientos
y veras como sigues tibio muy dentro,
ven amor y descubreme
olvida el tiempo, que haremos crecer
las olas que vibran dentro de ti.

Contagiame de tu fe en los sueños
de tu pasión y locura
ven amor sembremos esperanzas
que alimenten el camino...

ven amor que de amor quiero hablar
solo ven, roba mis secretos
llename con tu luz, tan solo ven...


--------------------------------------------------

Give me a warm embrace,
burn up this shyness on me.
Can you feel how my dreams are shaking?
come my dear,
I'd like to talk with you about love,
touch me with your kisses
and set me free from my fears

Give me a warm embrace,
let the fears of yesterday behind you
Bring on your way back the forgetfulness
and let them fly away.
Come my dear,
I'd like to talk with you about love

Touch my thoughts
and you'll feel
how warm i'm keeping you inside
come my dear,
discover me,
forget the time,
and we'll let the waves dance into you

Come my dear,
I'd like to talk to you about love
just come,steal my secrets
fill me up with your light,
just come...
Track Name: Apples In Pink Pyjamas (Featuring Janiz Kern)
Lyrics:

Forget all about life's troubles,
they're simply empty bubbles.
Apples in pink pyjamas.
Guarantee.
You're smiling with me.
There you see,
a smiling is for free.

Don't dwell upon the dramas,
Eliminate the traumas.
Apples in pink pyjamas,
Help you see,
How good it can be,
Painting a picture...

Of crazy beautiful things.
For deep in your heart
are strings that till' now we're un played.
Around us there's always bad news,
But why should we live like,
We're still in love with the blues,
Tonight...

So if you're feeling lonely,
Missing your one and only.
Apples in pink pyjamas
Bring a smile to very sad eyes...
Maybe you'll be very surprised,
Tonight...

Push on the boat,
and sail away,
sail away,
sail away,
sail away.

Of crazy beautiful things,
For deep in your heart,
are strings that till' now we're un played.
Around us there's always bad news,
But why should we live like.
We're still in love with the blues,
Tonight...
Track Name: Angel Song (Featuring Janiz Kern)
Lyrics:

You know that fools are everywhere,
they'll try to let you down - they 'll never care.
Never lose your faith- whatever they say,
try to be yourself,
try to show them who you are,
don't give up too soon,
stand up for your own real dreams.

Life's a strong wave that rolls you over,
it will hold you down and throw you all around.
Stand upon your feet and don't be frightened-
springing to the sky,
reaching high up for the stars
Never be afraid,
you will never gonna fall down.

Take a listen to your wise inner voice,
and try to find out,
who you are and where you go
shining like a star,
on the bright smile of our life time,
we always win

Take a listen to your wise inner voice,
and try to find out,
who you are and where you go
tell me- do you hear all the angels's songs
that guide you on your way back to your home
on your way back to your true home.
Track Name: To Kalin (Reprise)
Lyrics:

A bottle of wine, on a glass table
Two glasses one glance,
now it's only still,
One glass is standing there alone,
Brother,
so why are you in such a hurry, where to?

But you are on your way now,
That's what you've decided,
And nobody can ever stop you here,
how strong must have you been to brace your final day,
so that your God can meet you face to face
Track Name: Back To Us (Featuring Kiril Valeri)
Lyrics:

Where shall we go with you
when there's no light in here, so tell me
what's left for us to do,
when we don't want to see
what we're made of.

Tell me where do we fly in our dreams,
tell me why do we try
not to believe
to the stories
'bont the bright blue
landscapes, smiling clouds,
rain that pours from the eyes of the stars.
