Info for Rhythm is in my heart

Recording an album is daring to create, as a painting. Unlike the instant of a concert, in which our art disappears almost immediately as we finish playing, recording allows us to preserve our work eternally, and to transmit it.

This album presents all the musical richness of marimba. Through a selection of works from different periods and styles, tied together by rhythmic improvisation, it tells little stories. The music of the entire world seems to have been born in the same place: the beating of our hearts is our first impulse to create acoustic rhythm, long before melody.

Georgi Varbanov
From an early age, Georgi Varbanov sought to express himself musically and began playing his mother's piano. During a concert, he discovered percussion... This was a revelation. Thus, began his passion for percussion. At only seven years old, Georgi won the most important national competition of Bulgaria. During his studies in preparatory music school in Pleven, then at the National Academy of Music in Sofia, at the Richard Strauss Conservatory

in Munich with Adel Shalaby and at the Mozarteum in Salzburg with Peter Sadlo, he won more than twenty prizes in numerous national and international competitions (Firt Prize at Pendim International Competition for Percussion Instruments, a Yamaha scholarship, a prize from the Kulturkreis Galstag in Munich). He has also received First Prize, as well as the André Jolivet Prize for best interpretation and the audience prize, at the International Competition for Percussion in Luxembourg (2005) with the Via Nova Percussion Group.

In 2009, Georgi Varbanov was named first solo percussionist with the Orchestre national d'Île- de-France. He has since performed ceaselessly with the group, in chamber music or as an orchestral soloist. He has also devoted himself to developing and refining percussion instruments and mallets in collaboration with Yamaha, Adams Percussion, Erho Sticks and Pendim percussion.
