Vladimir Karparov was born in 1977 and grew up in Bulgaria's capital, Sofia; he discovered music at an early age and already began playing the saxophone as a child. He studied at the "The National Academy of Music" in Sofia from 1995 to 1999, with jazz and popular music as his main areas of concentration. He quickly realized that his fascination gravitated more towards jazz; to deepen his knowledge in this area, he applied for a scholarship to Hamburg's Hochschule für Musik und Theater (HfMT), with success. Yet the longer Vladimir Karparov lived away from his home country, the more intensively he began investigating Bulgarian folk music, which gradually became an essential and irrevocable component of his music.
