) is a Bulgarian rock (Rock and roll) band, founded 1988 in Sofia by four classmates from the local Mathematics High School. The band describe their music as ''alco-agro-porno-punk'' though elements of ska, hard rock and heavy metal (Heavy metal music) are used ''en masse'' as well. Hipodil's popularity however is based in large on their aggressive, sarcastic, sometimes vulgar and explicit but yet humorous lyrics. Because of that Hipodil are known as a "scandalous and rebellious" band. Their main goal is to entertain the listener and themselves; most of the lyrics concern topics such as alcohol, sex, women, the status quo, etc.; they frequently ridicule famous Bulgarian and non-Bulgarian people and even politicians (and sometimes songs). Nevertheless, the band has some pretty serious tracks with complex and socially oriented lyrics. All the lyrics are in Bulgarian (Bulgarian language) and are written by vocalist Svetoslav Vitkov (''Svetlyo''). Most of the music is composed by guitarist Petar Todorov (''Pesho''). In a great number of songs, guest musicians take part, adding mainly to the brass section. Between the wars In Constantinople, with the help of the court pianist to the Sultan, Ilen Ilegey, Bortkiewicz began to give concerts and started teaching again. He became well known throughout a number of embassies and made an acquaintance with the wife of the Yugoslavian ambassador Natalie Chaponitsch, to whom he dedicated his ''Trois Morceaux'', Op. 24 (1922). She organised musical gatherings for Bortkiewicz within the embassy, and it was with the help of her husband that the composer and his wife were able to obtain a visa for Yugoslavia. Bortkiewicz and his wife came to Sofia via Belgrade, where they had to wait for some time before obtaining an Austrian visa. On 22 July 1922 the composer and his wife reached Austria.
