About us

DILMA is a chamber music group, founded by the three bulgarian musicians Diana Erdem-flute, Linda Mantcheva-cello and Malina Mantcheva-violin. During their studies at the Sofia National School of music, and later at the Sofia National Music Conservatory they have been taught by the best and most recognized teachers in Bulgaria. By chance they continued their musical careers at the same institution - the Cologne Conservatory, where they kept playing together during the following years.

With their recently established group called DILMA, the three musicians bring out to the audience a unique combination of historically informed performance of baroque and classical music, emotionally rich interpretation of romantic pieces and new arrangements of the unrivaled Bulgarian folklore music. The listener is invited to experience older and newer musical traditions, with their characteristical diversity.
