Lot Lorien biography
The Lot Lorien music group is a Bulgarian world-fusion-progressive band that is rapidly gaining popularity worldwide. The band came into existence in 1998 and has been continually developing a sound that has no equivalent in the world. The creators of the band, Kiril Georgiev and Zlatomir Valchev, were inspired by J.R. Tolkien's books and through his works came the name of the group.

Lot Lorien's compositions, both the original music and interpretations of some traditional songs, use elements from Bulgarian, Balkan and world folklore, combining them with progressive rock and jazz influences. By presenting traditional music in a contemporary format the band makes it more accessible to people from all around the world. The impressiveness of Lot Lorien's sound is further enhanced by the use of standard and non-standard instrumentation, such as acoustic guitar, bass, violin, female vocal, drums, keyboards and percussions (glockenspiel, tapan, djembe, darbouka...)

The band is a member of IOV (a UNESCO- affiliated International Folk Arts Organization) since 2003. Lot Lorien have performed at many concerts and festivals in Bulgaria and around the world at places such as Italy, the Russian Federation, Pakistan, Turkey, Poland, Slovenia, Finland, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Romania, South Korea, Serbia, the Republic of Macedonia and Croatia.

To date, Lot Lorien have released 3 albums with AMAdea Records, two studio albums and a live album in collaboration with the internationally renowned Bulgarian folklore and jazz musician Theodosii Spassov. Their first release is Eastern Wind, followed by Live in Ohrid (feat. Theodosii Spassov) and then Lot Lorien. All three albums were released more or less at the same time, in September 2009. More releases are expected in the near future.
