«Начало Века – это ПОПУЛЯРНАЯ музыка. Не та, что спущена сверху, а та, что действительно способна понравиться народу»

► Для творчества группы «Начало Века» характерен синтез народного корневого искусства с современным музыкальным мышлением. «Начало Века» берут аутентичные фольклорные произведения без срока давности и перерабатывают их актуальными музыкальными средствами. За основу берётся текст и мотив народной песни, а аранжировка делается исходя из вкусов и музыкальных предпочтений самих музыкантов. Группа пошла по проторенному пути эклектики, которая к концу XX века сублимировалась практически во всех жанрах в компилятивность, вырождаясь в постмодернизм. Сейчас «Начало Века» — это уже не фолк-рок как таковой, а некий этно-фьюжн широкого профиля, world music.

Theodor Bastard

Saint Petersburg, Russia
The history of the band begins in 1996 when Fedor Svolotch took interest in noise music experiments. Later other musicians joined the band, and there was their future vocalist Yana Veva among them. In 2004 THEODOR BASTARD recorded and released their sixth album "Pustota" which became the turning point in the history of the band. The album instantly became famous among various listeners in Russia as well as in foreign countries. A year later "Pustota" was released in three more countries. In this work Fedor managed to find a successful combination of electronic beats and ethnic instruments. And Yana Veva, who has rare vocal timbre, performed the main vocal parts using specific singing techniques which referred the listeners either to oriental musical tradition, or to Balkan and Russian folklore.

Every following album of THEODOR BASTARD was released in its own specific style: the album "Sueta" was compiled of the live records made on the European tour, the album "Beloe" reflected Fedor and Yana's ardour for the Slavic mythology and Russian folk, and the last single "Tapahula" has shown new interests of the band: the culture of Mesoamerica and rhythms of Africa. But along with that, along with breaking stylistic and conceptual limits, THEODOR BASTARD has always been true to themselves and known for their sound and approach.
