I live in Bulgaria and all my life is connected with music and, most of all, with playing the guitar.
In fact, I love it. I’ve been playing since 1993. It was a long way of trial and error but, eventually,
music turned out to be the most important thing. What I find amazing is the possibility to express one’s feelings,
views and thoughts about our life and existence. For me, music is all about passion. It is an ember of life.
I'm really thankful that I have a chance to play and record my ideas.
And today's technology gives me everything I need to share my art with the rest of the world.
I owe it to Internet communications and to all the friends I've met.
Thanks for checking out my website and music!
Born in Asenovgrad, Bulgaria in 1976, Dimitar Nalbantov lives and works there today as an art teacher.
His free time however, is devoted to his true passion - the guitar.
Dimi (as his friends call him) displayed an interest in art and music at a young age,
but it was art that was chosen to be the focus of his formal education. That focus began to shift in his high school years when one day in 1993,
he picked up an electric guitar for the first time. Outside of his art studies, the next seven years found Dimi teaching himself to play,
studying the music of such guitar greats as Jimi Hendrix, Joe Satriani and Steve Vai and playing in local bands.
While he was pursuing his art degree at South-West University, the guitar continued to play an important alternative role for creative expression.
In his senior year, it became somewhat of a lifesaver. Prior to graduation in 2000, a deceitful art promoter stole 17 paintings from Dimi - all his work of the past four years.
He was devastated.
Unable to pick up a brush, he turned to his guitar and began to study music composition and arranging.
He also began to teach himself the English language to understand the vast amount of digital music technology information available on the Internet, written mostly in English.
Not long after, he won the Internet “Guitar Player 2000” Contest in the genre of alternative music, sponsored by www.guitar.ru.
In the years since, Dimi has recorded studio tracks for several band projects, also serving as audio engineer.
He has recorded numerous demo tracks for the AMT Electronics Company, Overloud, IK Multimedia and many more, gaining him many fans and friends around the world.
Adept at guitar, he has become a proficient keyboard player as well.
