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.
In March, when the measures were mitigated, the singer returned to teach in the Academy of Music, Dance and Fine Arts in Plovdiv
Vesela also works as a musical director in dubbing films
