Vaiana Tasheva, Bulgaria – Music

 

“I was born near the Great River at the end of April 1989. As a child I dreamed of becoming a cosmonaut or singer. I believe I have fulfilled both my dreams because I sing since I was 5 years old and travel through space, though not physically. I participate in two bands as a frontman: in a electronic duo GO’TOUCH’T and in a psychedelic trio “Elephant of the Princess”. As KOPRIVA (which means Nettle) I exist since 2016. This is my solo music project that represents a small universe bigger-on-the-inside, where I can explore, develop, experiment, share and relate, where I can live.
I define myself as a pacifist. The only permissible violence should be the moment of provocation induced by the consumption of art and the subsequent movement (action) that leads to change, whatever it is.
The topics that I am excited about are madness, sadness, timelessness, loneliness as natural, normal states. It is only when these states are understood and accepted that action and change are possible. In my music I use a variety of vocal effects, so I play many roles at the same time. My goal is to convey and remind the public the knowledge that no one is an image and no one is just a person. Every person has all the roles, reflections, faces, sounds and colors at the same time. This proves that we are all One, I am You, We Are. As a sea that constantly changes, but it remains the same, at the same time all living beings are two-way connected in a common consciousness, therefore loneliness should not exist … In my opinion, love is not the strongest feeling, it is the most natural.”

 

 

I came out of LOVE.

KOPRIVA (NETTLE)

 

I came out of Love. I live within Love. It is Love to which I come back.

Once upon a time there was a Spirit. She came out of love and love she was carrying. Her Force she sourced from Earth and she was giving it as a gift to the Cosmos, because our mission here is to give love, she was thinking. Besides Love, this Spirit was carrying one Idea with her, she has been carrying it for a long time, she has been observing it up in the sky how it turns into figures, into shadows of spirits, how it transforms, rotates, dances, suffers, screams joyfully, breathes, flies up and down, because this is what Ideas do – they move, led by the aspiration for change and, soon or later, if the fire of the spirits is strong enough, they attain visible outlines.

Love and change is what this world needs, the Spirit was thinking and was proceeding her walk on the Road – barefooted, with stretched hand towards the stars (this hand was just waiting for the moment when it will clench into a fist), and bravery. Bravery, because she knew that everyone, who seeks, should be very brave and fearless. And strong. Lots of Force and Will is needed in order to close your eyes and sacrifice yourself in the name of the Idea, to not look aside and to not sacrifice others…

The song “I came out of Love.” draws life as a ritual in eight minutes, the evolution of an Idea from its birth, from the womb, from the earth, out of love. It visualizes Revolution like a small fire in time, which is important to be seen (like an endless field full with countless fireflies, flickering and glimmering in the moonless night). This is the story about the free choice, about the Will, the desire for change, the necessities of the Spirit.

We create ourselves by ourselves and we walk on our road to the Cosmos, led by ourselves.

I am You, You are Me. We are.

I came out of Love. I live within Love. It is Love to which I come back.
