Jazz music community with review and forums

Outhentic is a combination of the words: “out” and “authentic”, which is in the meaning of “out of the authentic”. Their style blends tastefully Balkan folk music, jazz and contemporary improvised music.

The band was formed in 2012 by Zhivko Vasilev (kaval, piano) and Rayna Vasileva (vocal, percussion). In 2018, Borislav Iliev (guitar) and Stoil Ivanov (drums), became part of the group.

In the process of establishing their style, the band has had the opportunity to collaborate with extraordinary world-famous musicians and bands such as: the Grammy-nominated bassist – Juan Garcia-Herreros, Stoyan Yankoulov, Ian Stevenson, Suchet Malhotra, etc.

In the band biography, there are performances on various Bulgarian and international stages: Performance in the twelfth edition of the European Museum Night 2016 (Sliven, Bulgaria),Glastonbury Festival 2017 (England), etc.

Zhivko Vasilev is one of the most popular Bulgarian kaval players. He is well known for his experiments with the kaval and the constant seeking for unexplored paths in music. Thanks to his experimental spirit he is constantly driven to combine traditional kaval sound with different western styles such as jazz, funk, latin, latin jazz, pop, electronic music and many more. The result of this incredible symbiosis is an exotic and unique style that he constantly improves.

He hails from the Southern city of Smolyan, Bulgaria in the heart of the Rhodopi mountains. He inherited his love of music from his father and began his early training on the kaval at the NUI Dobri Hristov music school in Varna, Bulgaria. He recently graduated in kaval performance in the St. Clement Ohridski Sofia University. He has performed all around the world at many prestigious stages and festivals. He has collaborated with many great musicians among them Max Moya, Xuxa Levi, Juan Garcia Herreros, Roberto Quintero, Christiane Karam, Angel Zaberski, Stoyan Yankoulov, Teddy Katzarova, Silvia Katzarova, Kalin Veliov and Hector Martignon. He is also the leader of his own project, the Zhivko Vasilev Trio – Outhentic, which blends Bulgarian folkore with western contemporary flavors.
