ARIA-IA is pun and abbreviation of “Autonomous Republic Ivan AngeLove. Ivangel by Aruni”. (Every word of this pun is magnificently equal in both Bulgarian and English languages.) How this title was born is a whole other story.
THE PLOT and the STORY BEHIND
Well, it is quite long and quite complicated. One can briefly get acquainted with it by watching the video above; and in detail by reading ARIA e-book, emotionally capturing and presenting the appearance of Ivan in ‘Music Idol Show”, Bulgaria – back in 2008. The book gathers thousands of posts, selected from the official internet forum of the Show (mainly) and conceptually arranged into something like a movie story Over 1000 pages – bursting out with ideas.
Isn’t it hard to read so many pages? Absolutely not – the book is passionate, amusing, funny, serious, ironic, intriguing, well illustrated and is pretty easy to get ahead through its pages. Here you have a short part of a post from Episode 10 as an illustration:
