Since the beginning of the pandemic, the musical sector suffers strongly – in some periods live concerts are totally banned, in others – they take place in very strict measures for the audience gathering. This severely limits the main activity of musicians.

The singer Vesela Morova has graduated in the United States. She studied singing in the famous Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she was involved in various jazz, ethno and latino music formations. She's been back in Bulgaria since 2012 and she's participating in various groups and musical projects.

The photo story traces the professional life of Vesela from December 2020 to March 2021 when no live performances were possible. The photographs give the audience the opportunity to see the musician's unknown behind-the-scenes activities. The story also documents the only way for the singer to meet her audience – remote, through the screens.

Vesela mainly sings with Spectrum Vocal Band which is the only Bulgarian vocal ensemble whose repertoire combines pop and jazz in multi-shaped folk plays and songs performed entirely without instrumental accompaniment. This winter the band started recordings of their second album – Singerprints​​​​​​​

Exam for students in Pop and Jazz Singing at the Academy of Music, Dance and Fine Arts in Plovdiv, where Vesela is a part-time lecturer. It was held in December and was online due to strict anti-epidemic measures imposed​​​​​​​.
