My grand man has a birthday in a month. It's our third year in Bulgaria together (after our wild jorney thru Latin America) and he keeps amazing me with the incredible way he is managing our and his life in a foreign country. When we leaved Mexico in the beginning of 2014, we were forced to leave our third member of the family behind - The Korg piano, the best Piero's friend and our music mate, thanks to which we were gigging in 3 different countires, in more than 7 cities. His connection with his buddy was even older and stonger. So, we left our baby, because we had to buy or a plane ticket to it or to transport it in a hard case, which we bought dearly expensive and was defrauded in the last possible moment by a mexican site and it never arrived. I tried to calm Piero down that the talent is in his hands, not in the instrument. And he proved it. Three years later, he is participating in several highly-professional Bulgarian projects, recording his first solo album under the artistic name IYEN BAYA and attracting one of the best musicians in the capital, with who he created the Afro-Peruvian musical project Ritmos Negros.
Percussions are always calling him, yet the absence of a keyboard at home ties his hands in many perspectives. I wish we all can unite forces and give an instrument in the hands of an artist so that he can deploy his potential at fullier extent.
If you wish to be part of Piero's birthday gift you have to do just two things:
1. Click on the donate button you will find on the right upper side of my blog and transfer whatever amount you wish to contribute with (do not forget that Many a little makes a mickle).
2. Record a very short video with your phone, congratulating him for his birthday and send it to me to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please, be aware that I have to be ready with the compilated and edited video by 22 January, so please, send me the video as soon as possible and at the latest - a week earlier. This will be his real present - to see the love and care of all of you!
And of course, please keep this in secret. Not even a word. The best part of a gift is the surpirse. And I am pretty secure he won't open my site in the upcoming month. He never does :)
Last but not least, a keyboard in house means we can revive Piero & Kalina duet and start working on something new together! So, I will be 100% invloved in his present as well :D
