The ethnic line is a guiding star of the group. It brings us back to the culture origins, to the search of the prints of various musical traditions in themselves, in each other and in the environment, thus producing some new interesting musical forms and sounds. The particular sound of Tyloburdo includes the vocal remakes that use abundant voice abilities. The instrumental themes and remakes are also elaborated. The musicians are noted for their desire to master an unusual instrument (competingly) and to teach the others to play it afterwards.
A human was always fascinated by a bird image as a symbol of Freedom, Space, Inspiration and Dream. A bird always conveyed revelations and was identified with a superior wisdom and an incorporation of clouds, fire, sun and thunder… These metamorphoses are countless like the roads of men’s lives, for we are all free like a bird.
