Theodor Bastard is one of the most unusual Russian bands and exists already about 20 years. Within decades the band is independent from the show business meaning the industry, the conveyor, because they consider the art is more important.
The band create unearthly music inspired by myths and dreams. The band's songs are extremely far from everyday life, they lead the listeners to the world of eternal beauty and harmony.
The genre of this music can be defined as world music and contemporary folk with the influence of trip-hop.
The hallmark of the band is the unique female vocal by lead singer Yana Veva filled with mightiness and in the same time with meditative serenity and mild warmth.
Yana Veva often sings in personal language invented by her and in ancient languages ranging from African and Asian to Native American.
The musicians use electronic instruments: synthesizers, samplers and even theremin as well as classic instruments: cello and harp and plenty of ethnic instruments: Chinese flute bawu, Australian didgeridoo, Iranian daf, African ashiko, djembe, mbira, marimba, agogo, Cuban conga, Egyptian darbuka, Appalachian dulcimer, Mongolian morin khuur, Slavic cimbalom, Russian gusli, Tibetan horn and many other.
Over the past years Theodor Bastard have performed at many large fantasy, gothic, folk, medieval festivals throughout Europe, including Wave Gothic Treffen in Germany (2011, 2014, 2017) and Castlefest - the largest fantasy festival in the Netherlands (2015, 2017).
Theodor Bastard albums were released in 5 countries: Russia, Germany, Turkey, Mexico, Argentina.
The name of the band Theodor Bastard is the English translation of the band's founder stage name - 'Fedor Svoloch'.
Originally, in 1990's it was a solo project of Fedor - guitarist and composer. Yana Veva joined the band later, in 2000's and her influence to the band's music has been extremely great. Her intonation is the most important feature of the band since that.
