Listen to a live recording of these artists
Established in 2001 (and known first as the BG Brothers) , Triada consists of the brothers
Chekardzhikovi: Nikola, Vasil and Petar from Bulgaria. The three are former members of the guitar quartet Four of a Kind, an ensemble which included their sister Petya
Chekardzhikova. A heavy schedule of concerts, TV and Radio appearances in Bulgaria led to appearances in Europe from 1994 to 1996 when Four of a Kind twice toured Belgium and
Holland under professional management, presenting concerts in Brussels (Palais de Beaux-Arts), Antwerp, Liège and Leuven, among others. Since coming to the United Sates , the
brothers have performed in California, Wisconsin, Indiana, Colorado, Texas, Arizona and Hawaii. In March 2004, Triada won first prize in the Third Annual Guitar Ensemble
Competition in Brownsville, Texas.
The three brothers studied guitar since early childhood with professor Ljuben Haralambiev in
Varna, Bulgaria. In America, they have studied as Graduate students at California State University, Fullerton with professor David Grimes. The brothers have also participated
in master classes with internationally-known guitarists, such as Los Angeles Guitar Quartet (USA), Pavel Steidl (Czech Republic), Ana Maria Rosado (USA), Joaquin Clerch
(Cuba), Eric Franceries (France), Aldo Lagrutta (Venezuela), George Vassilev (Bulgaria), and Costas Cotsiolis (Greece).
