Alright, it’s been a while since anything happened around here, so it’s time to get moving. As I said before, Ropeadope Records will be releasing my very first album end of month, and it will be announced here.
Meanwhile, I’ll be posting a new song in a couple of days. The song is about our favorite place that we visit several times a day. Well, personally I barely leave it If you like anything I did before, I assure you’ll love it!
So see you very soon, and those of you who always wanted to buy my record will have a chance in a week!
ISC announced its winners. Buddhuza’s When I Open Up My Door fell short of about 1,200 votes to win in the People’s Voice, but made it to the honorable mention.
Considering that ISC received almost 15,000 entries in 2009, it’s not bad at all.
Thank you all for you voting and support and, next time you see this logo of the website, you know what to do!
Buddhuza signed with Ropeadope for the release of the first album Zer0, a collection of tracks from New Demos and NowHere.
Ropeadope team is working hard on the release, which should be up for sale in several months.
Ideen für Wien, an Austrian blog covering almost all aspects of Viennese life, featured Buddhuza in its Musik aus Wien section. The article is in German, so some of you want to use Google Translation to figure it out.
It’s basically almost everything that you and, surprisingly enough, I know about myself. You’re more than welcome to share the article and comment on it, and tell us what’s missing
Big thanks to Viktoria for her interest and translating my answers to German!
Khatia published another interview with me on her new blog, Words Melt. Let’s check it out and leave her comments. And here’s a copy:
Levan Khubulava, known as Buddhuza, is a song writer and singer. Since I first time found Levan’s songs on the net, he’s creativity is impressing me. From his first interview with me I do know about Levan, that he is originally from Georgia and he loves music. Buddhuza is uploading his new and cool songs online quite often, has brilliant ideas and remarkable style of writing.
Hello Levan, nice to hear from you again. What has changed in your life since your first interview with me?
Depends on how close a look you want me to have. One thing I know, there are some shifts in the way I see and feel, and I think that outleaks in my music in some portions.

Remember how we listened to that radio show
To hear the songs that were not in the charts?
I didn’t understand a single word they said,
But the music made it to my heart.

Some of you might have noticed a little green arrow next to every play button on the site. That means now you can download high quality MP3 (256kbps) of every song available in the Music section.
I’m glad I don’t financially depend on music at present and can offer free downloads and free CDs at concerts. This may not be the case when I’m signed, so enjoy the little green arrow while it’s here!
Thanks for all your support, I hope the evening served the purpose and you had fun.
I didn’t manage to capture the quality video, but there’s a webcam record still streaming at http://emap.fm/tunnel.ram (I’m surprised it’s still there). It’s not the best performance, so make sure you really know what you’re doing
Enjoy the snow!
Everything is Dancing by Buddhuza is included in the 2009 ADCOLOR Awards Compilation CD.
The music on the compilation got some exposure at the awards show on October 4th, in Phoenix Arizona. The show was hosted by CNN’s Soledad O’Brien and gave a special All Star award to Cristina Saralegui for her accomplishments in media and business.
Snippets of the songs were a part of the musical background of the show. In addition, the compilation CD got plugged on stage before all of the advertising, marketing and media executives and influencers that were in attendance.
Check out ADCOLOR website to preview the music included in the compilation CD, some of it is pretty cool!
