April 14, Hall 1 of the National Palace of Culture (NDK), Sofia, during the concert of Hristo Yotsov Quintet featuring the vocalist Yildiz Ibrahimova and a guest percussionist Alain, Luxembourg.
Old copper pots and pans suspended on ropes, shattered glass, a ladder and paint-soaked fabrics form parts of the jazz composition and stage visuals. While the Jazz singer Yildiz Ibrahimova is doing her vocal improvisations the musicians make all manner of noises with these unusual musical instruments.
The actions of the three performers resemble stylized ritualistic acts typical of Easter Week – washing Christ’s feet, painting in red, bringing to mind the theme of wounds, self-destruction, self-humiliation, forgiveness and humility.
