Maeoma is the 4th album by Vataff project the downtempo project of Victor Marinov a Bulgarian composer .
The album was largely created in the Rodopa mountains in Bulgaria a place of great spiritual power and home to the legends of Orpheus and a country with a deep mysterious power .
The album Maeoma is highly evocative of this Bulgarian spirit and centred around a contemporary mixing of tradition sounds and timbres with a very unique analogue electronica sound which twists and turns and flows effortlessly like a morphing sonic invocation of the natural spirit of the forests and mountains of the Rodopa region of Bulgaria.
The work is of a particulally high sound quality and the music has a very strong esoteric presence and vibration and is utterly unique in its form and power and beauty.
The following musicians appear on the album:
Veselin Mitev: kaval (on Sedenkia)
Shtoni Kokudev: kaval, bag pipe (on Devo & Beshevidela)
Vidya Bistra Kirova: voice (on Just Blue)
A female vocal group from the village of Beli Iskar, Samokov municipality, Bulgaria (on Sedenkia, Electro Nature, Devo, Beshevidela)
